As far back as the mid-1500s women were wearing silk stockings and men were probably leering over a glimpse of their ankles. Sadly, now-a-days the “y” has gone from sexy and there’s nothing left to the imagination.
So do yourself a favor, mix up a cocktail and sit back and watch Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse in the fun and flirty movie, Silk Stockings that, presumably, gave name to the drink. You’ll feel really good about it.
