Swalter

Comment:

Spirit-forward with faint zesty tartness balanced by delicate rich red fruit sweetness.

About:

The Sir Walter (or Swalter) first appears in Harry MacElhon's 1927 Barflies and Cocktails and is repeated in other regarded tomes such as The Savoy Cocktail Book (1930).

Whether this cocktail honours Sir Walter Raleigh or Sir Walter Scott is a matter of conjuncture, but as MacElhone, who heralded from Dundee, Scotland, is thought to be the drinks' creator, many favour Scott as being the protagonist.
