I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Alpha Stamps has this super retro kit called Dapper Gents that is chock full of awesome paper, chipboard shapes of a pipe, fedora, t.v. set, etc., saucy gents, and some suggestive quotes. I was all about that and used it along with a 1950's "Professional Mixing Guide", a pocket manual of cocktail mixing instructions, to make a little book. Actually, it looks like a book but has a drawer that slides out, which is where I included a few ATCs.





I combined the papers and images from the kit with cocktail recipes from the vintage mixing guide for the ATCs. The fronts have handsome gentlemen and randy ladies, as well as the name of a cocktail:

Here's the recipe for a perfect "Stubby Collins". Remember to serve with a stir rod!  Cheesy



Cheers!

Love, love, love!

Also, I guess I didn't notice at first that the lady in the Fibber McGee recipe seems to be raising her eyebrows at the word "cock". Thanks for the mature image warning. Cheesy
