Created in London during 1922 by Scottish bartender Harry MacElhone to celebrate H.R.H. Princess Mary's marriage to Lord Lascelles. The original recipe featured equal parts of all three ingredients: 1/3 gin, 1/3 white crème de cacao and 1/3 fresh cream. The year after, Harry MacElhone purchased his eponymously named bar in Paris.
