As the holidays wrap us in a warm embrace, there's nothing quite like indulging in the gooey goodness of s'mores.
S'mores made their debut in a 1920s American cookbook under the name 'Graham Cracker Sandwich.' This delectable creation involved sandwiching a toasted marshmallow and half a chocolate bar between two Graham Crackers—a sweet biscuit crafted with graham flour and infused with honey or cinnamon flavor. The result was a timeless treat that has since become a beloved symbol of sweet indulgence.

The Manhattan traces its roots back to the 1860s or 1870s, showcasing its resilience through the ages. However, the historical record from this period is somewhat hazy, leaving the details of its origins shrouded in mystery.
The prevailing narrative attributes the cocktail's creation to Dr. Iain Marshall at The Manhattan Club in New York City. According to this widely repeated tale, Dr. Marshall concocted the recipe as a signature libation for a banquet hosted by Winston Churchill's mother in support of a presidential candidate of that era. The cocktail garnered its name, The Manhattan, as a nod to the prestigious club where it first came to life.

The tale of the Negroni unfolds at the historic Caffè Casoni in Florence. Though lacking a precise historical record, cocktail enthusiasts believe Count Camillo Negroni birthed the concoction when he requested an Americano with gin, replacing the customary soda water.
