The original recipe for the Blue Monday Cocktail can be found in the Savoy Cocktail Book from 1930 by Harry Craddick. It also pops up again in the 1934 Official Mixers Manual by Patrick Gavin Duffy. This version is a slight variation on the original 1930s edition found in Diffords Guide: The Bartender’s Bible. This variation of the Blue Monday Cocktail substitutes Vanilla Vodka for Citroen Vodka as well as Vermouth for Dry Vermouth it gives it orange and vanilla highlights with the body from the vermouth.
