Variations and noteThis is a relic of the old American Prohibition era and was originally made with "bathtub gin" of very dubious quality. This is a robust cocktail; you can serve it before a meal. You can find the same ingredients (but doses are different) in another cocktail: Knickerbocker. Be careful! There is another cocktail with the same name but most of the ingredients are different: Knickerbocker Special Knickerbocker Knickerbocker Special
