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.
