Episode 66: Ready for a Closeup – The Filmograph Cocktail

Something about a cocktail named The Filmograph sort of screams early 20th century technology. “Folks! Gather around and see the future of moving pictures. Just a dime will introduce you to the wonders of the Filmograph!” We aren’t exactly sure what a Filmograph was, but it must have been something because we now have a drink named after it.

With a lack of references to the drink and some vague information about film publications and projection machines, this one left us with a whole bunch of speculation on how it got the name.

In this episode we focus on the unusual ingredient of kola tonic, explore its evolution toward being arguably the most famous non-alcoholic beverage, and the history and use of the kola nut. So step right up ladies and gents and marvel at The Filmograph!

The ingredients are as follows:

  • 2 oz. of brandy
  • 3/4 oz. of lemon syrup
  • 1/2 oz. of kola tonic
