Cool find!

Thanks. I've been reading a lot about this era and the Murphys in particular are full of great anecdotes and recipes (plus I adore Murphy's painting "Cocktail," which is my photo on this site).

I like his paintings too--in fact I saw and enjoyed the exhibition mentioned in the link. I'm an art historian and I've actually done a fair amount of archival research on artists of that exact era, but never picked up a cocktail recipe before!

Juicy and light, as you'd expect. Would make a good brunch cocktail. (5 stars)
