Review:

Fruity, floral and slightly sweet with an unfortunate yellow-green colour.

History:

Adapted from a cocktail featured in Jeff Berry's Intoxica and originally created in 1932 at Sloppy Joe's Bar, Havana, Cuba. Named after Hollywood ingénue, Joan Bennett, who in the same year starred in Fox's Careless Lady. Years later she hit the news when her husband, producer Walter Wanger, shot her agent in the crotch after catching them in bed together. Oo-err!
