1/3 Orange Juice.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
This cocktail is thought to have been named after the RMS Olympic, one of three Olympic-class liners almost identical Olympic-class ships built for the White Star Line. The other two, the Titanic and the Britannic became much better known due to their demise - the Titanic sank after colliding with an iceberg on her maiden voyage, while the Britannic, which never operated as a passenger ship, hit a mine and sank while serving as a hospital ship during the First World War. In contrast, the Olympic sailed for 24 years from 1911 to 1935, including as a troopship during the First World War, earning her the nickname Old Reliable. The Olympic was sold for scrap in April 1935.
