Ran across this article that claims the genesis of the Cocktail Party was a Socalite in St. Louis, April 1917.

Here is a copy of the 1917 article:

Pretty remarkable but how did we miss the 100th anniversary of the "Cocktail Party"?

I want to know how what differed between the churchgoers and the motorists. We know they were divided, but did they get different drinks? Why?

I'll be up to celebrate the 101st next year.

What of apertivos and antipasto? The Milanese must have been cocktailling in the 19th century. Campari and sweet vermouth were certainly being mixed on the continent.

BTW, I hadn't tried a Bronx Cocktail or a Cloverleaf but here they are:

Bronx Cocktail (1917)
1oz Dry Gin
1/2oz Dry Vermouth
1/2oz Red Vermouth
1oz Orange Juice
Shake with cracked ice, strain into a cocktail glass

Cloverleaf (1910)
1oz Lemon juice
1 Egg white
2oz Dry Gin
1 barspoon Raspberry Syrup
Shake with cracked ice, strain into a cocktail glass
Garnish with a mint sprig.

OZ :fez:
