Finding Cocktails in the Dusty Archives

Pre-Prohibition cocktails have made a huge comeback in the past decade, with bartenders spending hours searching through old cocktail books to revive favorites such as the Vieux Carre, or the Brooklyn. However, some of the best vintage cocktails aren't found in books at all; instead, they're nestled between entries in a fishing log, or scribbled on the back of medical records. Philip Greene (co-founder of the Museum of the American Cocktail, and author of two best-selling cocktail books) and Jeff "Beachbum" Berry team up on a hunt to recover those forgotten cocktails of history, and uncover hidden recipe gems in the last places you'd expect.
