The 12 Classic Cocktails; In a Wave of Nostalgia
Noble House Hotels Features the Drinks
Our Grandparents Used to Have


SEATTLE, WA (June 24, 2004) - In an age of apple martinis, flavored rums and cosmopolitans, Noble House Hotels and Resorts is paying tribute to the classics, with the introduction of 'The Dirty Dozen' classic cocktail menu.  The selection of traditional cocktails being offered is as timeless as the epic World War II film after which they are named, and a tribute to this bygone era.

Perhaps it is a wave of nostalgia that is responsible for the revival of the classic cocktail. Once again, decades later, shouts resonate across the bar for drinks such as the Stinger, Rusty Nail and Manhattan. "We've been noticing an increasing demand for the classic cocktails - the drinks our grandparents used to have," remarks Marc Pujalet, president and chief marketing officer of Noble House Hotels and Resorts.

The 12 classic cocktails featured are: 

Brandy Alexander, 
Rob Roy, 
Rusty Nail, 
Sloe Gin Fizz, 
Stinger and 
Whisky Sour. 
These cocktails include a mix of the clear spirits (vodka and gin) and the brown spirits (brandy, bourbon and scotch) and, just like Lee Marvin's Major Reisman, they are strong, solid and know how to get the job done! The drinks offered have been included based on input from bartenders at the resorts and suggestions from customers. 'The Dirty Dozen' will be promoted to patrons at all bars at Noble House Hotels and Resorts. 

'The Dirty Dozen' menus sit bartop at Noble House restaurants, including the acclaimed BALEEN restaurant concept, now in Miami, Naples, Santa Fe and San Diego. Menus feature brief history and interesting facts about each cocktail.
