Let’s have a Cocktail

No, nothing exciting to celebrate at this moment.  In shuffling paper and digging about, who knew there was a cocktail created in Dorothy’s honor?  I do not know who cooked this one up, but it originates from an old Bacardi cocktail recipe booklet.  I plan on trying it out and will report fully with photos!

    Hi there, I came across your site whilst doing some research. In answer to your intrigue, a gentleman named Eddie Woelke created this drink back in the early 1930’s. He also created a drink in honor Mary Pickford.
    Hope this sheds some light.
    Regards,
