The Phonograph, The Final Countdown Begins, and The Purple Haze Cocktail

On this day in 1877, Thomas Edison announced his invention of the phonograph. The device enabled sounds to be recorded onto wax cylinders for play back later. Derived from the Greek words meaning "sound" and "writing" the phonograph would rapidly be improved to play more durable vinyl discs. High quality sound reproduction in the comfort of your own home was just around the corner.  If he only knew what was soon to be recorded.

The Historical Inebriant: The Purple Haze Cocktail


2 Parts Lime Juice
1 Part Simple Syrup
1 Part Black Raspberry Liqueur
Fill a shaker with ice cubes. Add all ingredients. Shake and strain into a chilled shot glass.
