Mamie Taylor

Mamie Taylor cocktail with scotch and lime juice

Opera star Mamie Taylor sidled up to a bar in 1899 and asked for something refreshing, and her eponymous cocktail was born. It was all the rage at the turn of the last century, but would have been forgotten just as quickly were it not for cocktail historians like Harry Craddock and his tome, The Savoy Cocktail Book.

Reese Lloyd at the Cocktail Hacker website turned us on to adding a couple dashes of orange bitters at the end. We like it so much, we think it oughta be standard.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
