Margarita Cocktail Recipe

The Margarita is a popular cocktail made with tequila, triple sec and lime juice. The drink is sometimes served with salt on the rim of the iconic glass named after the drink, which is similar to the cocktail glass but steps in, creating a “well” at the bottom.

French 75 Cocktail Recipe

The French 75 cocktail, also known as the 75 cocktail, is a drink that dates back to the first World War. I was originally created at the New York Bar in Paris by Harry MacElhone. The drink gets its name from the kick given by the blend of gin and champagne, which is said to feel like being shelled with a French 75mm field gun. The drink is served in a champagne flute.

The Old Fashioned cocktail is made by muddling sugar with bitters, then Bourbon or rye whiskey. The drink is usually finished with a twist of citrus rind and a cocktail cherry. It is traditionally served in an Old Fashioned glass, which is named after this very drink.

'He and this Wolfsheim bought up a log of side-street drug stores here and in Chicago and sold grain alcohol over the counter. That's one of his little stunts.
