Cocktail Questions – 1950s Cocktails

Q: I am throwing a 1950s themed party and would like to serve popular drinks from that era!

A: The 1950s are considered by many to be the Golden Age of the Cocktail. The martini was most popular. A favorite of Dean Martin and the rest of the Rat Pack, it became everyone’s favorite. My grandmother, who was never much of a drinker, still fondly remembers the 50s and those wonderful martinis.
