Once in a blue moon.. The famous phrase comes from the occurrence of more than one full moon within a month, happening every two or three years. This classic tipple, similar to the Aviation, is thought to have been invented in 1940 by Oscar Tschirky of New York’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel – the same man who is credited with inventing Eggs Benedict and the Waldorf Salad…now that’s the makings of pretty amazing brunch. Cheers!
