About:

Created prior to 1887, the date of the first-known print reference to the Adonis cocktail, this drink celebrates the success of the Broadway musical of the same name.

The Adonis opened at Hooley's Opera House in Chicago in the summer of 1884 before moving to New York's Bijou Theatre in September that year, where it went on to be the longest-running Broadway show of the era.
