Information

Named after the 1922 movie of the same name. First appeared in 1930, in the Savoy Cocktail Book.

The cocktail is a beautiful one with a touch of sweet and citrus. Cherry Heering is a great substitution for the brandy because it has a more natural cherry flavor than many of today's cherry brandies. Also, fresh-squeezed orange juice is definitely recommended.
