Review:

A brandy-laced meal with zesty orange cutting through the heaviness of cream.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Ted Saucier's 1951 Bottom's Up, a cocktail book "with illustrations by Twelve of America's Most Distinguished Artists", one of which was Albert "Al" Dorne, who was "one of the best and highest paid in the field of advertising illustration" of his day. It seems he was also a talented mixologist as the book credits this cocktail to Al Dorne.
