I’ll Drink to That!: Broadway’s Legendary Stars, Classic Shows, and the Cocktails They Inspired (Hardcover)
By Laurence Maslon, photography by Joan Marcus
We’d like to propose a toast…to Broadway! Learn the spirited history of drinking on stage (and off) and how to make cocktails inspired by the most iconic Broadway shows.
I’ll Drink to That! is a celebration of theatrical tradition, a souvenir of magic moments on stage, and a practical guide to concocting craft cocktails inspired by the classics of the American stage.
This guide expertly mixes clever cocktails that pay homage to unforgettable Broadway shows – such as the Rainbow High and the Sidecar Named Desire – with authentic recipes for drinks that played supporting roles in beloved shows – like the legendary Vodka Stinger from Company – and shakes it up with a history of the cocktail on Broadway, detailed by one of the leading musical theater historians, Laurence Maslon.
Featured throughout are fantastic images – from intoxicating photos of classic shows to portraits of effervescent stage celebrities to vintage liquor ads featuring Broadway stars. Of course, the drinks themselves get their own spotlight, photographed by legendary Broadway photographer Joan Marcus at the iconic Sardi’s restaurant, home to hundreds of opening nights over the past century.
With drinks ranging from the South Pacific-inspired Bali Ha’i Ma’i Ta’i to Mame’s Cornhusker mint julep to the Hamilton My Shot, and illustrated with a wide range of rare drawings, posters, and advertisements, I'll Drink to That! is the perfect gift for anyone who loves the theater, enjoys an elegant bend of the elbow, and wants to be part of a long and bubbly theatrical history.

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
