AKA:

Hoop La! Cocktail, Odd McIntyre Cocktail

Review:

If you like Sidecars then you'll love the Frank Sullivan. Just on the tart side with a touch of quinine bitterness which makes sipping through a sugar-crusted rim a delight.

Variant:

Hoopla

History:

Adapted from the Frank Sullivan Cocktail recipe in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book. The same book also features two other cocktails with the exact same recipe: the Hoop La! Cocktail and Odd McIntyre Cocktail.
