1936 Shaking in the 60's by Eddie Clarke

for "another cocktail" echoing and re-echoing around the

room. I cannot say whether there was a happy ending to the story. Did the lady of the tavern successfully manage to capture the heart of the young farmer? Who knows? Anyway,it is another good story—and it could have been the birth ofthe cocktail, so why not take your pick? Let us now go a step further and delve a little into the art of mixing, because so many misguided characters think that the way to cocktail success is to pour liberally into a shaker the contents from any bottle at hand which contains either a pretty looking liqueur or some other liquid fire, then after some acrobatic antics in shaking to seiye the devil's brew to some poor unsuspecting human. Should such a character be allowed to run amok, life would befairly dangerousfor the innocent adventurer who is going through the initiation stages of cocktail drinking. Instead then of learning the hard way as above, and ruining one's health,let us seek the correct way to embark on this pleasant pastime. And our first step into the un known must be to learn the classification and make up of these delicious nectars.
