Last time we celebrated Dr. Cocktail. This time we’re hailing the King: Dale DeGroff, aka King Cocktail. Join us for our next edition of Fan Fiction on Monday, August 13th, from 5pm-2am, as head bartender Danny Shapiro recreates DeGroff’s 1998 Rainbow Room menu.
He wanted to know what drinks would have been served in the classic bars of New York, places that would have been visible from the perch of the Rainbow Room. So twelve years ago he started collecting bar books. Today he has 600 recipe compilations, monographs and memoirs in his collection. Via GQ.
