Virtual Exhibit

The Museum of the American Cocktail is putting the finishing touches on its New Orleans exhibit, which will be opening in July of 2008. You can find more information, details, as well as many photographs here.

Just a few items from our New Orleans Exhbit

We hope that all of you can get a chance to visit us there soon, in the meantime, we would like to provide you with the virtual exhibit below, which includes some of the material from our New Orleans exhibit, as well as some original content created just for this online version.

Cocktail Evolution

Here are some of the exhibit panels from our main display, click on one of the thumbnails to launch the tour, then click on the left or right side of the window to move forward or backward through the tour.

Origins of the Cocktail

The earliest known definition for the "cock-tail" comes by way of a response to a rather innocent "Letter to the Editor" from May 13th, 1806. Click on the image below to see how this exchange appeared in "The Balance and Columbian Repository"

Albert Pick Saloon Catalog

Albert Pick was once a well known supplier of restaurant and bar equipment. We have a copy of their catalog from 1918 as part of our exhibit and have extracted a few choice images which we thought you might enjoy.
