First database update for Martin’s Index now live

Martin’s Index customers should be receiving their first free update! This one is small in size, but potent, comprising:

  • ten Prohibition-era recipes from Cuba, including the essential Daiquiri, Mary Pickford and Presidente, drawn from the Manual del Cantinero (1924)

  • a couple significant recipes from Boothby and Vermeire I had overlooked the first time that were subsequently requested by customers: the original Bamboo Cocktail and the Diplomat

  • a few editorial fixes pointed out by customers

I believe special thanks are due the inimitable Joerg Meyer for bringing to the surface the history of El Club de Cantineros and making publicly available their first recipe book, the Manual and other vintage materials.

More Cuban and other Prohibition-era drinks soon!
