Charlie Chaplin

The Charlie Chaplin Cocktail was made in the 1920s at the Waldorf Hotel in New York City; however, no one is certain who invented it. Many people cite the 1935 “Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book,” although it may be found in print for the first time in the 1931 Old Waldorf Bar Days cocktail book on page 128 with a drawing of Charlie above it. Both recipes have a tart flavour and a touch of sweetness. If you give it a try, please let me know what you think.
