"Bernard"? That's "Mary" to her friends....


How did you get a drinks book published in a male-dominated field if you happened to be a woman? Slap some quotation marks around a male nom de plume and you're in business!

After ordering a copy of The Universal Cookery Book (in just about the worst condition I've ever seen a book) I made a surprising discovery. Following is a pic of 100 Cocktails by "Bernard", 1958. Below it is the copyright page from The Universal Cookery Book.
