Courage for your travels (and still pretty good if you’re staying put).
Florence, Italy, 1919. About to embark on a long and tedious journey, Count Camillo Negroni walks into Caffé Giacosa. He’s about to order his usual Americano, but pauses saying “No soda for me today Amici - I need some liquid courage for my travels. Give me some gin with my Campari and Vermouth.”
With that, the Count created an all-time classic cocktail - The Negroni.
We have it on no authority that he then ordered several more and never actually made it out the door.
CHOCOLATE OLD FASHIONED
Everything old is new again.
New York, 1806. The first definition of a cocktail appears in print:
"A stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water and bitters…. and is supposed to be an excellent electioneering potion in as much as it renders the heart stout and bold, at the same time that it fuddles the head… a person having swallowed a glass of it, is ready to swallow anything else."
Our Chocolate Old Fashioned captures all this in a bottle. A sublime new take on a peerless classic, its about style.
Consider yourself licensed.
The original Vesper - The 007 Martini - was named for the first Bond Girl, Vesper Lynd; the only woman Bond would ever love. In Flemming’s book, James orders:
"Three of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half of Kina Lillet, shake it very well until it’s ice-cold. Then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. Got it?
I never have more than one drink before dinner. But I do like that one to be large and very strong and very cold and very well made." (Casino Royale, 1953.)
In all the movies and books that follow, Bond never orders this drink again. If you’re familiar with Vesper’s fate, you’ll understand why - but this drink is too good to remain undercover.
