Playboy, in its early days, ran a lot of these small ads for cocktail and liquor accoutrements. This one’s pretty awesome, and I’d love one.
I mean, it’s perfect, right? At least assuming you like your martinis at 4 to 1, and I do. And I love that it’s normative in this era (unless you’re a Mortini drinker) to expect a 3.5 ounce cocktail.

Here’s a brand you’ve probably never heard of. Apparently a Czech product, Kord was available in two styles, regular and zubrowka.
From the October 1956 issue of Playboy.
