Light and sweet, Georgia Peach

One theory on the origin of the Gibson has Charles Dana Gibson responsible for the creation of the Gibson, when he supposedly asked Charley Connolly, the bartender of the Players Club in New York City, to improve upon the martini's recipe, so Connolly simply substituted an onion for the olive and named the drink after the patron. Another story given by Charles McCabe of the San Francisco Chronicle states it is from San Francisco. A.P. Gibson remembered that when he was a boy, his great-uncle, prominent San Francisco businessman Walter D. K. Gibson (1864–1938), was said to have created it at the Bohemian Club in the 1890s. Whatever the origin the drink remains a classic twist on the martini. Simple and clean usually served with a single onion it remains a standard.

Grasshoppers are a sweet, mint-flavored, after-dinner drink. The name of the drink is derived from its green color, which is provided by the green crème de menthe. The drink reputedly originated at Tujague's, a landmark bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans. It gained popularity during the 1950s and 1960s throughout the American South as a perfect way to top off a heavy meal taking advantages of mint’s naturally stomach settling effects.

Many drinks are an offshoot of the Gin and Vodka drinks out of the 20’s and 30’s that are part of the Cap Codder family which is Vodka and Cranberry. There are many variations on this drink like the Bay Breeze, Sea Breeze, Greyhound… Any way you look at it the drink reminds you of summer by the sea!

Named after the rock band that never dies, the Grateful Dead will bring you quickly to that altered state of being that most Dead Heads aspire to. So fire up the “The Music Never Stopped” and bottoms up!
