You know how it got it’s name?

It was the favored tipple of old men, who would ride to the cafe on bicycles. 

Which is why some suggest 2 orange wheels as garnish.

I went to a local crafts fair today and scored 3 vintage coupe glasses for $9 total.  So we enjoyed a Twentieth Century in them in the backyard this afternoon. 1 1/2 oz. gin 3/4 oz. Lil

A cocktail worthy of having given its name to most important bar of our time, the Pegu Club: Pour 2 oz. Gin (Monkey 47!) and 3/4 oz. each of Curaçao and lime juice, with 1 dash each of Angostura

Pour Campari and wine into a glass. Add ice. Top with soda. Garnish with an orange wheel.

I am drinking this right now, and I approve of it. Minus the orange wheel, 'cause there's no oranges in the house.

No, not Arctic ice or glaciers. I know that’s nature. I mean the square ice that goes in drinks.
