Forgotten Cocktails, that’s the topic for November 2010 Mixology Monday event hosted by Dennis at his Rock & Rye blog.
The topic is not easy as it seems at first time. Here in Russia cocktails are not forgotten, they’re unknown.
I’ve remembered one cocktail I saw earlier at «Approved Cocktails, authorized by UK bartenders guild» by Harry Craddock. Cameo Kirby, it looks like another Martini-like cocktail, and then I’ve tried it but can’t find anything about it in Internet except one more Google-book «Gourmet’s Guide to New Orleans» by Natalie Vivian Scott and Caroline Merrick Jones.
The title Cameo Kirby is known thanks to old movie released in 1923. Who knows, maybe the cocktail was named after that criminal drama.
