Adventures In Mixology: The Stork Club

This mix of Gin, Triple Sec, Orange Juice, Lime Juice and a drop of Bitters was the house cocktail of New York’s famous Stork Club. The club was open from the end of Prohibition to the dawn of disco and was a hot spot for many famous faces. It was at the club that one night Ernest Hemingway beat up the warden of Sing Sing Prison. On a lighter note, John Kennedy courted Jackie there.
