The Dirty Little Secret of Classic Cocktails

The Dirty Little Secret of Classic Cocktails

The Boulevardier, the Last Word and the Pegu Club are some of the most popular drinks today. But while they date back decades, they weren’t actually popular when they debuted. So are these classic cocktails really classics?

On this episode of Fix Me a Drink, hosts David Wondrich and Noah Rothbaum discuss these and other so-called sleeper recipes with Robert Simonson, the author of the new book Modern Classic Cocktails. The trio explores why these recipes weren’t famous back in the day and why they grew into best-sellers only in the last few years.

So make yourself a “classic” cocktail and listen to this new episode of Fix Me a Drink. Cheers!
