Remember The Maine
In 1898, sensationalist journalists used the phrase “Remember the Maine, to Hell with Spain” in response to the mysterious sinking of a U.S. naval ship, The Maine, off the coast of Spanish-occupied Cuba. This cocktail surfaces in Charles H. Baker’s “The Gentleman’s Companion: Being an Exotic Drinking Book or Around the World with Jigger, Beaker and Flask." (Spirits/Cocktails)
