Algonquin Cocktail – Classic Prohibition era Cocktail Recipe

Algonquin Cocktail

This fun little drink was invented sometime during prohibition at the Algonquin Hotel in New York. A group of artsy fartsy folks would get together at the bars largest table and poke fun at the people and world around them. This group of folks founded the Algonquin round table and called their group The Vicious Circle.

Individuals in this group would take the humor and satire they learned there to go on and create plays, poetry, art, and even launch The New Yorker magazine.
