A well-balanced combination of sweet and sour.
One of two vintage cocktails that variously appear under the names of Sloppy Joe or Sloppy Joe's. They either originate from 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.
Adapted from a recipe in Stanley M. Jones' 1977 Jones' Complete Barguide.
