Rose – Make This Amazing Currant Flavored Cocktail

Rose Cocktail (French Version)
Rose Cocktail (French Version)

What makes this the French version of the Rose is the use of currant as the sweetener. There are two versions of the Rose that came out of France in the late 1920s. The version in this app comes from the 1929 French cocktail book “Cocktails de Paris” by Georges Gabriel Thenon. The other is from “ABC of Mixing Cocktails” by Harry MacElhone of Harry’s New York Bar in Paris.

All Rose cocktails have the same structure. One part cherry brandy, two parts French vermouth, and 1 part some sweet red fruity liquid. In the French version of the Rose, the sweet red fruit is currant, but Cocktails de Paris uses currant liqueur, and ABC of Mixing uses currant syrup. ABC of Mixing Cocktails credits Johnny Milta from the Chatham bar in Paris for inventing this cocktail, as does David A. Embury from “The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks.”

Although if you look at the recipe in Embury’s book, he claims the French one uses raspberry syrup, they use currant if you look at Thenon and MacElhone’s books. So who the hell knows what the truth is? They were all probably drunk or on drugs while they worked the bar.

Algonquin – Make This Delicious Prohibition Era Cocktail

Algonquin Cocktail
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 bar’s most enormous 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.
