Full of gay cooking ideas!
​Cooking with ice -- how totally 20th-century! This super-groovy, full-color pamphlet published in the 1960s by Servel ("Makers of the famous Automatic Ice-Maker Refrigerator") was probably included with the purchase of one of those state-of-the-art iceboxes. I've never actually seen a Servel fridge, but vintage advertisements make it look pretty alluring.

One doesn't actually cook with ice, of course, but this booklet is loaded with ideas for relish trays, finger foods ("Keep 'em gay, keep 'em cool ... on ice!"), salads and beverages, including Iced Mexican Chocolate.

The recipe follows the jump.

Iced Mexican Chocolate

Beat together 1 cup chocolate syrup and I cup strong black coffee, beat in two cups of milk gradually. Pour into glasses half-filled with crushed ice. If desired, serve with whole cinnamon sticks as "sippers."
