Named for the famed actress Mayme Taylor, the inexplicably misspelled Mamie Taylor cocktail is the likely predecessor to the Moscow Mule. It’s a simply made three-ingredient combination of Scotch, ginger beer, and lime juice. The vanilla in the blended Scotch pairs well with the bite of the ginger beer that is lacking in other Mules.
Created in 1899, it was widely popular for the first half of the 20th century. The Alton Evening Telegraph, at the time, raved that Mamie would “curl your hair, make you leave a good home, lend money, crease your trousers…[and] make you climb steeples.” This all but forgotten pre-Prohibition classic is slowly seeing a resurgence in the modern cocktail renaissance.
