Day 180, Cocktail 176

Ahh, to have been around when the Stork Club was in its heyday.  It was the place to be, not just in New York, but anywhere in the world.  And If you really part of the in crowd you would be able to get a table in the Cub Room within the Stork Club.  How swank is that, having a room within a club?  Maybe I should have the  Boom Boom Room within The Twilight Lounge!

Anyway, I was listnening to some back issues of the Dinner Party Download, my new favorite podcast (since TikiBar TV appears to be defunct).  Check it out at the Apple Itunes store, you’ll dig it the most.  The historical topic was the day Jack Parr walked off the set of the Tonight Show.  The cocktail to match the event was the Stork Club.  I immediately tried it upon getting home tonight.  Here it is.

  Stork Club Cocktail

  • 1-1/2 oz gin
  • 1/2 oz Triple Sec
  • 1/4 oz lime juice
  • 1 oz orange juice
  • 1 dash Angosturo bitters

Combine the ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake, shake, shake.  Strain into a cocktail glass.  Garnish with a flamed orange peel.

This cocktail was created by Nathaniel Cook, the chief barman at the Stork Club.  It’s tasty and slightly tart.  It’s definately like drinking a bit of history.  I can close my eyes and imangine I’m in the Cub Room with my pals from the Rat Pack or maybe the Kennedy clan.

See you tonight at Ivee’s for Trivia Night!
