Fourth Regiment Cocktail with Jamie Boudreau

There aren`t too many classic cocktails calling for celery bitters, but one that is mostly credited is the Forth Regiment Cocktail which was popular in the late 1900, and considered good enough to go into Charles H.

How to Make the Sherman Cocktail

“Old Waldorf Bar Days” by Albert Stevens Crockett was one of the great books of the 1930`s. The bar of the Old Waldorf hotel was the social meeting place in NYC at that time, but unfortunately the hotel itself had to make room for a new icon of New York City – The Empire State Building.
