Recipes for Fiesta Time. [Cary, Illinois]: [Villa d'Este], [1972].

First Edition. Original wrappers, top spiral bound, 31 pages, 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches. Extremely scarce cocktail recipe guide (of 103 recipes) by this Cuban-American bartender at the Anvil Club in East Dundee, Illinois and at the Villa d'Este in Cary. No copies located on WorldCat and is not mentioned in Bande's obituary (born in 1932 in Varadero Beach, Cuba). No publication information is printed, but if Bande was possibly in his 40's when publishing his book of recipes, one can guess a printing date in the 1970's. Includes a nice introduction about Bande's career in bartending and his finalist award in a national drink mixing contest sponsored by the American Society of Bar Masters. Includes a frontis of the author and his introduction. Includes such drinks as Rafael's Daiquiri, Happy Pete Daiquiri, One For the Ditch Cocktail, Adios Muchacho, Paradise Island, Enrique Bande Punch, Carlos Bande Cocktail, etc. Very Good.
