Information

A classic, usually credited to Harry Craddock and The Savoy Cocktail Book despite actually being from Hugo Ensslin’s Recipes for Mixed Drinks. An apparent favorite for post-Prohibition expats, the Savoy Cocktail Book notes that it was 'well-known and very popular in the American Bar of the S.S. Europa,' a German cruise liner that operated through the 1930s.
