A variation of the Whiskey Sour, this drink is a little less sour and more fruity. Dating back to the late 1800s this drink was invented in Boston at the Locke-Ober, which unfortunately closed its doors in 2012. The story goes that the cocktail was made to celebrate Martin Lomasney 1892 political win in Bostons 8th political ward, but others say it was actually the favorite drink of Lomasney’s henchmen.
