Comment:

Approach with caution. Unlike the experiments of Serge Voronoff, nothing about this drink is designed to enhance virility.

Origin:

Created in the late 1920's by Harry MacElhone at his Harry's New York Bar in Paris, France. The Monkey Gland takes its name from the work of Dr Serge Voronoff who, convinced that testosterone was vital to a long and healthy life, transplanted monkey testicles onto elderly Frenchmen.
