Adapted from Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book and kindly brought to my attention by Jason E. Clapham of the St. Edward's MCR at Oxford. The fact that Craddock says it originated at The Savoy, but neither takes credit nor credits a colleague, leads me to suspect this cocktail was created by Ada "Coley" Coleman.
