The Corpse Reviver Cocktail

Raising the Dead with Three Corpse Reviver Cocktails

Just as the Bourbon Rickey experiment happened on National Whiskey Day, tonight’s Mr. Boston’s cocktail recipe, the Corpse Reviver, is aptly timed. With Halloween just around the corner, I was excited to see this creepy drink appear on the menu. The Corpse Reviver appears to have made its comeback a few years ago. However, after closer inspection, today’s

Cornell Cocktail

The Cornell Gin Cocktail

Turns out Jacques Straub was a teetotaller. At least according to an article published by Gary Gillman this April and Jacques’ own 1920 Obituary which noted that: “Notwithstanding Mr. Straub’s knowledge of wines and liquors, he never drank.” I discovered Mr. Straub’s rumored sobriety while looking for clues about tonight’s Mr. Boston’s cocktail, the Cornell. I had

The Commodore Cocktail

Commodore Cocktail

Citrus was once used to help prevent and treat Scurvy on long trips across the sea. Perhaps that is the tie into the Commodore Cocktail name? After a sleepless night with a 12 week old puppy and the terrible mass shooting 30 minutes away from my home, I am rather tired today. I toyed with

The Clover Leaf Cocktail from 1935

I have the best husband in the world! To commemorate my Mr. Boston’s series, Ryan found and purchased me a first edition print of my 1935 cocktail book. My book arrived today in near perfect condition. Any imperfections this 82 year old book has appear to be the result of the way books were printed

Claret Punch

Trying to clean with an un-potty trained, teething puppy makes the process take 10 times longer. Attempting to write while teething puppy nips at you is nearly impossible! Harvey is lucky we love him so much 🙂 He is currently a category 3 hurricane. With all the distraction, I find myself getting around to tonight’s

Cameron's Kick Cocktail

Cameron’s Kick Done Two Ways

I needed a Cameron’s Kick today. For some reason my brain wasn’t fully functioning. Thank God it’s Friday! The recipe published in Mr. Boston’s 1935 for the Cameron’s Kick can also be discovered in the Savoy Book with one slight tweak… for some reason Leo Cotton switched out Harry’s suggested ingredient, Orgeat, for Orange Bitters. Aside

The Cablegram Cocktail

The Cablegram Whiskey Cocktail

We had way too much fun sharing our Ginger Beer over at the Summer Market last night. So much fun that I did not get around to making up Mr. Boston’s 1935 Cablegram Highball 🙁 Market Week continues through Wednesday and Ryan is itching to start exploring. As a result, I’ll be drinking my Cablegram with

The Brunelle Cocktail

The Brunelle Cocktail

When I told Ryan that today’s Mr. Boston’s cocktail was a combination of equal parts lemon juice and Absinthe his “hell no” response was exactly what I thought when I read the recipe for the Brunelle. Before traveling out to New Orleans, I reached out to the Old Absinthe House in hopes that they would
