My favorite new resource:
The Founding Chapter of Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails (LUPEC) welcomes you!
This site is dedicated to the Gin Fizz, the Widow's Kiss, and the Singapore Sling – the drinks our mothers and grandmothers drank, the drinks we strive to save from extinction as a small measure of remembering those great women and their great cocktail parties.
Here you can find information about those cocktails, as well as their history and the rituals, barware and hors d'oeuvres that accompanied them.
So, remove the pineapple chunk from your cocktail, raise your glass, and drink to their memory! Up in ya!
