About this Cocktail

One of my favorite drink recipes from Stanley Clisby Arthur's landmark 1937 publication "Famous New Orleans Drinks & How To Mix 'Em"!

  • 1 TB sugar
  • 1 Lemon - juice only
  • 1/2 Jigger rum
  • 1/2 Jigger Bourbon whiskey
  • 1 Jigger cognac or brandy

Dissolve the sugar with a little water in a mixing glass. Add the lemon juice, then the rum, Bourbon, and cognac. Fill with fine ice, clap on the shaker and go to work. When well frappéd pour into a long thin glass. Decorate with fruit (if you want to be swanky) and serve with a straw.
