The Beer Dispenser!
This, ladies and gentlemen, is the cocktail’s cocktail. First served in 1880 in Kentucky, this drink is the first to be called a cocktail. It’s a real adult beverage and it’s real good!
Spirit, sweet, bitter, sour and water – perfect! But you have to know how to make and mix this perfect elixir.
The Old Fashioned is made by expertly muddling sugar with bitters and then adding to an alcohol base such as whiskey or brandy. The finished mix is served in a short, round piece of glassware with about 8 to 12 ounces of capacity. Since it’s the first cocktail, the Old Fashioned even has a piece of glassware named for it.
Make your own Old Fashioned
Next time you go to a bar or tavern, order an Old Fashioned. First, you’ll be able to test as to whether you are in a real bar or not. Second, you’ll be able to tell whether you have a real bartender or not. Otherwise, unless you make it yourself, a good Old Fashioned is hard to find. Enjoy!

Mai Tais Anyone?
The Mai Tai is a venerable alcoholic cocktail based on rum, Curaçao liqueur and lime juice. This drink is most popularly associated with Tiki culture and Polynesian-style settings.
This very tasty cocktail was purportedly invented in 1944 at the famous Trader Vic’s in Oakland, California. Trader Vic’s rival, Don the Beachcomber, claimed to have created it in 1933 at his bar named for himself. Don the Beachcomber’s recipe is more complex than Trader Vic’s and tastes quite different. Nevertheless, try a Mai Tai today. Thanks for visiting!
