Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Fleischmann's Distilled Dry Gin Recipes


The front of the yellow wraparound cover has Fleischmann's Distilled Dry Gin in red letters outlined in black. Under the curved Fleishmann's is Established 1870. The company logo, a gold eagle in a black circle of wheat, is in the center of the page. Below is "Recipes for 25 popular mixed Drinks which can be made with this milder, smoother, American-type gin." The back cover has a circle of small stars around "Buy A Bottle Of Fleischmann's Gin, An American Gin distilled from American grains from an American formula by an American company that makes gin -- and nothing else." The lower right corner has Printed in U.S.A. and the lower left corner has the booklet number. The front end page and next three pages have nine questions and answers which present "some important facts about Gin which every American should know," such as descriptions of different kinds of gin and why Fleischmann's is a superior gin. The back end page has an advertisement for Fleishmann's Dry Gin's new label with a picture of the bottle. The first four pages of recipes each have a black-and-white photograph of a bartender mixing drinks on the page opposite with a small sketch and description of the establishment where they tend bar (The Ritz, The Plaza, the Hotel New Yorker and the Biltmore). The remaining recipes are each accompanied by a small drawing of the glass in which it should be served. There are no page numbers.
