Also commonly known as the Stonewall (Stone Wall), this cocktail was quite simple: rum and hard cider, essentially. The infamous Green Mountain Boys and their leader, Ethan Allen, purportedly drank this mixture prior to the legendary taking of Fort Ticonderoga. Benedict Arnold also was said to have tried this, and to have reported on the Green Mountain Boys’ doing so. Even Buffalo Bill, much later, was a fan (he preferred it with a twist of lemon). Soon, with the westward push and expansion, the drink would evolve; during the Civil War period, it came to be made with corn whiskey and non-alcoholic apple cider. This recipe here is an attempt at the Colonial original.

Steps
