Invented in 1941 at the Cock’n Bull pub in Los Angeles; this drink single handedly saved vodka sales. The story goes that 3 down and out-of-luck individuals; Sophie Berezinski, John Martin and Jack Morgan came together and created this drink.
Sophie Berezinski owned a bunch of copper mugs no one wanted, John Martin was the new owner of Schmirnoff, a flavorless spirit no one wanted, and Jack Morgan was the Cock’n Bull bar owner with a ginger beer no one wanted. They combined their unwanted products and the rest is history.
