I got these as a bonus when I ordered a cocktail shaker for a gift last Xmas. They caught a bit of humidity over the years...It is paper ephemera after all.
I was looking for some kind of indications of the year they were produced and I did. well at least I found the 1951 copyright! They were manufactured by Monogram of California.
I find the 3D details on each napkin. And the captions are funny, well most of them are...I imagine with a lot of cocktails they could be, well HILARIOUS!
I don't know a lot about cocktails because my parents never had some. We had some wine in the house. Around Xmas some people would give my dad gin or other liquor and those bottles left the house real fast (I think my parents re-gifted them).
So no cocktails...I know the simple ones like rhum and coke, screwdriver (ewww) and jack and coke. Let's not forget the bloody mary/ceasar! That is one I enjoy once in a while, I must remember to buy some clamato!
These napkins are older than most of the people I know! LOL
You know I might just try my hand and make some cocktails thie holiday season....
