Historical cocktails: Golden Wedding whisky cocktail

Here are some historical cocktail recipes from the book “puis le gas y dit” by Distillers Corporation Seagrams Limited of Montreal.

The recipes in this book were found and tasted in buffets of connoisseurs, experts from hotel clubs and world-renowned hotels of the time. Divided into five parts, based on alcohol, gin, Scotch whisky, Canadian and American rye and bourbon.

Now the protagonist and our friend’s “gar” are going to a golf game. An anecdote for the traveller who tells “I don’t understand anything about these games…”. He refers to it in plural, because of course, the night before, they were watching a football game.

In any case”… the game over, we go back to the Club and there, we needed a shot in honour of the winner, who, as they said, was the least worse… so my friend says: ‘We’ll have a good Golden Wedding’ “.

An anecdote where, once again, spirits bring this group of people together in the tasting ritual. Here are two recipes based on Golden Wedding rye whiskey. This whiskey, today extinct was also produced by Distillers Corporation Unlimited in the 1930’s.
