AKA:

Millionaire Royal

Review:

Delicately sweet with whiskey-laced rich zesty citrus, sweet berry fruit and a hint of aniseed smoothed and rounded by egg white.

History:

There are numerous cocktails that go by the name Millionaire but this recipe (based on rye whiskey with curacao, raspberry syrup/grenadine and egg white, usually with absinthe &/or lemon juice) is thought have originated pre-1925. This is validated by its appearance in Harry McElhone's 1927 Barflies and Cocktails where it's credited to London's Ritz Hotel. (We've been unable to check the 1926 4th edition of Harry's ABC of Mixing Cocktails.)

Recipe adapted from a recipe in David Embury's 1948 The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks where he helpfully says, "in my opinion, it is improved by the addition of a small quantity of lemon juice. Two or three dashes of absinthe for each drink convert this cocktail into the Millionaire Royal."
