On Friday night a week and a half ago, Andrea and I went down to Coolidge Corner to get dinner at Lineage. At the bar, Ryan Lotz described the two cocktails he had chosen for that weekend's selections from Ted Haigh's Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails. The one that called out to me was the Honeymoon Cocktail which was "a signature cocktail of L.A.'s Bob Cobb's Brown Derby." The Brown Derby was a small chain of Hollywood restaurants that opened in the 1920s, and while they did have a Brown Derby Cocktail, it was not one of the more famous ones made with Bourbon or dark rum.
