Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails (LUPEC)

My favorite new resource:

The Founding Chapter of Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails (LUPEC) welcomes you!

This site is dedicated to the Gin Fizz, the Widow’s Kiss, and the Singapore Sling – the drinks our mothers and grandmothers drank, the drinks we strive to save from extinction as a small measure of remembering those great women and their great cocktail parties.

Here you can find information about those cocktails, as well as their history and the rituals, barware and hors d’oeuvres that accompanied them.

So, remove the pineapple chunk from your cocktail, raise your glass, and drink to their memory! Up in ya!

  1. Yea! I'll check this out when I get home. The frustration of getting a Rum Sour when you ask for a Daiquiri is sooo frustrating! I finally gave up carrying the recipe around in my purse & now just order “Cap'n 'n Coke”. Maybe those of us in sympathy need to march on bars as a reversal of the Temperance Leagues! Wonder if LUPEC would be interested in the recipes from Dad's 1939 Duffy's Bar Guide. Hmmm…. Anyway, great blog for a Friday morning!

  2. Here's to the Brandy Alexander that my grandmother used to drink.
