My Score


Unclear about the history of this drink. The source I used was Patrick Duffy's Official Mixer's Manual. In it he includes all manner of cocktails and I consider it to be the most authoritative as well as authentically classic cocktail book. Duffy has marked this drink according to his preface note: "As a means of precaution, I have placed a ° opposite each cocktail which I personally do not recommend."
