Read about cocktail measures and measuring.
Rich and fruity with a balancing brandy backbone. A bite-sized after-dinner or late-night treat that's reminiscent of a very fruity vintage port.
There are two very different vintage cocktails which similar names (the other being Sloppy Joe) that originated at or are named after Sloppy Joe's, a famous bar in Havana, Cuba during the 1930s. Ernest Hemingway was a regular and Sloppy Joe's inspired the fictitious Freddy's Bar in his novel To Have and Have Not.
This recipe adapted from one I found in the variation of the other Sloppy Joe cocktail in Stanley M. Jones' 1977 Jones' Complete Barguide.
