My entry for the 2012 Luxardo Cup Cocktail Contest put on by Mutineer Magazine which requires to create a cocktail that reflects your city in some way.
Created and named for Seattle's bootlegger, Roy Olmstead, who ran liquor from Canada to Seattle during prohibition. His nickname was the "good bootlegger" because his crew wasn't allowed to carry firearms as he believed rum running wasn't worth anyone's life.
