Our comment:

Slightly sweet and very fruity with raspberry and pineapple to the fore. Made with freshly prepared homemade raspberry syrup (1½:1) this is particularly delicious.

History:

The Knickerbocker Special first appears in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book. For the full story see our Knickerbocker Cocktails page.
