Review:

An armagnac-laced after-dinner/late-night, spirit-forward sipper that harnesses herbal and maraschino liqueurs. Apologies if you are reading this recipe in ounces, 5/12oz is between 1/3oz (too little) and 15oz (too much).

History:

The name, which literally translates as "And me, I'd tell you... Maud," but should be read as "That's Maud for ya," celebrates a French comedienne, Maud Loty. Nicknamed "La Maud," she starred in dozens of hit vaudeville plays throughout the 1920s and '30s.

This cocktail appears in Georges Gabriel Thenon's 1929 book Cocktails de Paris followed by Maud Loty's signature and the notation, "Grand Prize of Honor at the Champonnal de Cocktail des Artistes de Paris, June 21, 1929. This cocktail was presented by Mile Maud Loty, surrounded by Miles Betty Spelle and Yama and Mr. Dorly."
