Rear Admiral Gene Markey, "the man behind the woman behind the horses out in front," came to Kentucky and Calumet Farm in 1952 after an illustrious career as a writer and producer in Hollywood and as a reserve officer in the World War II Navy. In the accompanying article Markey expresses his gratitude to Kentucky but fails to state that the Land of the Juleps is indebted to him for introducing a new and popular drink—the Love Potion. The recipe:
1 part Demerara rum, 1 part light Barbados rum, 2 parts light Bacardi rum, 2 parts dark Bacardi rum, 2 parts fresh lime juice, 2 parts canned pineapple juice and a dash of maraschino.
Shake well with ice, and serve with a low bow.
