Drink Links

Today's Drink Link is to The Atlantic magazine online, and a great article my friend Matt showed to me about supersized cocktails and their decline in modern culture.

My favorite quote of the article involves a drink called the "Corpse Reviver":

He told me he’s intrigued by recipes for even smaller drinks, such as the original Corpse Reviver, consisting of brandy, apple brandy, and dry vermouth—“something very small, with a big burst of flavor, like a little pick-me-up,” he said. Such drinks were originally created as bracers with which to greet the dawn, and Day hopes to add others to his menu.

What a great line: "Such drinks were originally created as bracers with which to greet the dawn..."

It's great to read about old drinks.  So many of them were consumed for a purpose, as opposed to just the pleasure of drinking.
