History of the Brass Monkey Cocktail

The title "Brass Monkey" sometimes mean various things based on the context of its use. From the English colloquial expression and the 1986 single by the Beastie Boys to an English folk band and, obviously, the drink. Brass Monkey origins go back to while it had been produced as a premixed drink by the Heublein Company between the 1970s and also 1990s. The brand was an original alternative when initially launched simply because that the majority of liquor shops only carried beer, wine and hard liquor, not cocktails. These days , the Brass Monkey tends to be a lesser-known cocktail and its recipe varies widely .
