Review:

The aniseed of the absinthe combines well with the other ingredients but dilution is key. A bit of a sweety but a strong old bird.

History:

Some say this was created in 1935 by Albert Coleman at The Stork Club, New York City, but the cocktail first appeared in in Robert Vermeire's 1922 Cocktails: How to Mix Them and also notably in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book.
