Our comment:

Dry and gin laced with subtle notes of chocolate, dry vermouth and lemon. Some, like us, may prefer Joerg Meyer's version.


Created by a British bartender, C.A. Tuck and named after the express train that travelled between New York City and Chicago from 1902 until 1967. This recipe was first published in William J Tarling's 1937 Café Royal Cocktail Book.
