Our Comment:

This beautifully balanced, appley drink is so much more than so-so.


Adapted from a recipe in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book. Harry MacElhone's 1929 ABC of Cocktails credits this drink to "Mr P. Soso, the popular manager of Kit-Kat Club, London."

Our Martini cocktail page details its evolution and other common variants.
