Cocktails In Connecticut

Here’s a little Connecticut cocktail history for you. At one time, Connecticut was arguably the largest producer of chromium-plated cocktail shakers in the country. Chase Brass and Copper Company of Waterbury was known as a maker of brass and copper fixtures, but the company figured out a new way forward in the 1930’s and that was to make stylish shiny silver barware, today the items are highly collectible. If you want to know about these shakers, they are in museums all over the state, and you might visit the third floor of the Yale University Art Gallery where you will find an Art Deco heaven. Historian, Elizabeth Fox knows a thing or two about history in Connecticut. For more wonderful rich history about all things Connecticut you can go to Connecticut Explored Magazine.
