Comment:

Citrus and the tang of Swedish punch add a distinctive flavour to gin in this tasty vintage cocktail.

Variant:

Waldorf Cocktail No.2

Origin:

Recipe adapted from Albert Stevens Crockett's 1931 The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book where the recipe is accompanied by the following notation, "Perhaps [named] after William Waldorf, who built the original Waldorf. However, chances are, it originated either at the old Astor House or the Astor Hotel, and took its name from its bar of nativity."
