On a charmed day in New York City I bought a book from an unassuming man set up at a little stand on a street corner on the Upper West Side.
It turns out that Bottoms Up by Ted Saucier is a classic cocktail recipe book. The copy I bought for $10 is a 1951 first edition in excellent condition, with the dust jacket, and signed by the author.
There are twelve plates with exotic-erotic illustrations each by a different artist. There is a cocktail recipe named for each of the sexy images. Also, most pages feature small brush drawings of cocktail accoutrements and more sexy ladies in delicious poses.
