New York City's Stork Club was THE hang-out for famous celebrities in the 1920s and 30s. It featured top entertainers who performed nightly while patrons dined on caviar and sipped champagne or fancy cocktails. This is the prestigious nightclub's signature drink, the Stork Club Cocktail. The tangerine-hued drink was enjoyed by many famous celebrities during the club's heyday. It was "the most stylish glass to raise at this temple of café society" (as society writer Lucius Beebe penned) that epitomized fame, wealth, and elegance. The club closed in 1965, but its recipes continue to be enjoyed.
