Drinking With the Junior League -- 1952
Special Daiquiri Cocktail: "This cocktail hits like a sap to the back of the head."
|Brady Potts takes over in this week's Cooking With the Junior League and examines mixology from Memphis, 1952:
"This…this is a tasty, tasty cocktail. Were I the proprietor of a trendy bistro I would put it on the menu in place of the mojito, as a more elegant take on that South American standby that requires no muddling and looks smashing in a cocktail glass adorned with mint leaves. It is light, delicious, pretty, and requires very little in the way of mixology: mint, rum, sugar, and lime juice. What could be more simple?"
