MxMo LII: Forgotten Cocktails

I am excited to be hosting the next round of Mixology Monday here at Rock & Rye. This month’s event will take place on Monday, November 22nd, and the theme will be: Forgotten Cocktails. There are many cocktail books out there, and even more that are no longer in print, filled with thousands of cocktails. Some are decent, some are crap, and some might be great.

The challenge this month is to bring to light a drink that you think deserves to be resurrected from the past, and placed back into the spotlight. It could be pre-prohibition, post-war, that horrible decade known as the 80′s, it doesn’t really matter. As long as it is somewhat obscure, post it up. If possible try to keep to ingredients that are somewhat readily available. While we all appreciate the discovery of an amazing cocktail, if we can’t make it, it’s no fun for anyone.

If you would like to take part in this month’s festivities, send me an email with a link to your post (Dennis (at), or post a comment to this thread by midnight on Nov 22nd. Remember to link back to the Mixology Monday site as well. If you don’t have your own blog, I would be glad to feature you as a guest blogger, as long as I receive your submission in a timely manner. Looking forward to discovering some new drinks.

  1. Hi, Dennis! Thanks for host! It is hard work, I reckon.

    My entry is here. I post about one of my favorite vintage – The Jupiter Cocktail – the variations of Martini Cocktail with rare Parfait Amour Liquieur.
