Often considered the Vodka Cocktail that kick started the vodka cocktail movement. The people to blame are Jack Morgan, a man trying to sell some Ginger Beer, and John Martin, a man who was trying to sell some vodka. They created the drink at The Cock & Bull, a pub on the Sunset Strip, Hollywood in the 40's and it was an instant hit. They served it in fancy engraved copper mugs and trolled around town with one of the first instamatic cameras snapping pictures of bartenders who served it to promote the drink. It worked, and has lasted longer than the Instamatic Camera.
