Two Saturdays ago for the cocktail hour, I searched through Ted Saucier's Bottom's Up and spotted the Bronco Buster from from the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix. Despite the book having been published in the 1950s, I was surprised to discover that the resort-hotel is still in existence. The last time the hotel was in the news was when John McCain conceded defeat in the 2008 election on the its lawn. Saucier's book also contains another more famous rye-applejack cocktail, namely the potent Diamondback, which is on both Green Street and Brick & Mortar's menus.
