AKA:

Rose du Roy

Review:

A two-to-one Dry Martini sweetened and flavoured with one-part cherry brandy.

History:

This cocktail appears in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book as "Rose Cocktail (French Style No. 1.)" and also, with slightly less gin, in the 1929 book Cocktails de Paris as "Rose du Roy" where it is credited to a bartender named Charles from the Pavillon Henry IV hotel in St-Germain, Paris. The notation also says this cocktail won the Cup of Honour at the Professional Bartenders Championship held in Paris on 2nd February 1929.
