The Dark and Wooly
This week back in 1879, a young F.W. Woolworth opened the first Five-and-Dime store. Learn about how he turned small change into a massive empire, then drink down a cocktail direct from the source.
THE DARK AND WOOLLY, as mixed by Eric Adolfsen at The Wooly, a special-events bar tucked at the back of the Woolworth Building in Manhattan.
Into a classic brown paper cup (the old drugstore variety), add:
- 1 shot Cruzan Black Strap Rum
- 8 oz. Cola
- dollop of ice cream (if you’re feeling fancy, laboratorio del gelato)
Assemble as you would a coke float. Then sidle up to a tall stool, shoot the breeze with your chums, and pretend you only paid a dime for it.
