While certainly the most popular Mexican drink with Americans, no one is quite sure who invented the drink – or if it was even invented in Mexico. Many bartenders have claimed to have created the cocktail after meeting a certain female “Margarita”, the drink itself may have originated as a variation on another popular prohibition-era drink: the Daisy (Margarita is Spanish for “Daisy”). The only difference between the two drinks is that the Daisy uses brandy and the Margarita uses tequila.
While the margarita might be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Mexican cocktails, La Paloma may be the most treasured drink of Mexico. Prepared with tequila, lime and grapefruit, no one is quite sure who invented the Paloma, and while it may not be as prominent, the Paloma is much more than a cousin of the margarita. Many believe that tequila pairs better with grapefruit than lime.
Named after the Philadelphia’s men’s club of the same name, the Clover Club was the preferred drink for pre-prohibition era gentlemen. By the time the first recipe was published in 1901, the drink’s popularity had spread well beyond the club and into the masses. But, in the era of soda guns and bottled mixers, the Clover Club fell out of fashion, due to its more complex recipe. We’re proud to serve this classic cocktail, and encourage you to give the old boy a shot.

Invented by none other than James Bond author, Ian Fleming, the Vesper first appeared in the book Casino Royale and is named for fictional double agent, Vesper Lynd. It differs from Bond’s usual martini in that it features vodka and gin; and Lillet, instead of the usual dry vermouth. It was also ordered with strict instructions, including the famous, “shake it very well, until it’s ice cold.” Though some would say that shaking may bruise the gin, we feel it’s best to not argue with Bond.
Miners in 1890 Montana looked forward to this this booze and beer combination at the end of their shift. Irish bartenders affectionately called it the “Sean O’Farrell.” Also known as a Boilermaker – a nod to the favorite happy hour drink of steam-engine workers – this beverage is a fitting end to the workday. Gulp the shot first to take the edge off and then sip the beer to relax.
Classic in every sense of the word, this is the drink that’s synonymous with “cocktail.” While variations and origins are often fiercely disputed, the base ingredients are always the same: whiskey (bourbon or rye), sugar, bitters, ice.
This drink is so ingrained in American history that cranky old timers displeased with newer, sexier cocktails were reminiscing about them in letters to the New York Times – in the 1930s.
No cocktail gets as little respect as perhaps the Whiskey Sour. Bastardized into an artificial, high-fructose corn syrup-laden mess best reserved for wedding bars and Vegas card tables, the sour gets no love for its impact on cocktail history.
The whiskey sour is the original sour, an exceedingly simple cocktail that was the forefather of most “sour” drinks you see today. The whiskey sour paved the way for the daiquiri, the margarita, the rickey – anything that actually had citrus juice in the original recipe.
Unfortunately, those have all been misappropriated into sugary, slushy drinks as well. A damn shame, if you ask us.
Unlike the Mai Tai, the Singapore Sling has geniune origins in its namesake. The cocktail was born at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore sometime before 1915, and quickly grew to be their signature drink.
While the original recipe was thought to be lost, a committee of former Raffles employees got together and formulated their next best guess, based on the flavors of days past. Our Sling employs that new, improved “modified” recipe, using uncommon ingredients like gin, benedictine (an herbal liqueur made by monks), and Cherry Heering (a cherry brandy) to create an endlessly refreshing cocktail.
