History of the Cocktail – Hindsight Ep. 6

Admin May 16, 2012 0

Today on HINDSIGHT, Tom and Matthew will talk and imbibe with resident Los Angeles barkeep D. Max Maxey of Cole’s in downtown Los Angeles (dating back to 1908, it is the city’s oldest public house and a nexus of local lore). The subject will be the saga and evolution of the uniquely American contraption known as the cocktail… which has a storied, often controversial history dating back over 200 years. It is the subject of much cultural interest and curiosity and is engrained into the very fabric of American development as much as Jazz, baseball or George Washington.

Max will also being providing some demonstrations of specific historic cocktails so that you can enjoy history in the comfort of your own home!
