Review:

Temperature is key to the enjoyment of this modern classic. Consume while icy cold.

History:

Bartending legend has it that "Kangaroo" was the original name for a Vodkatini and the evidence usually put forward to corroborate this is the drinks listing in later editions of David A. Embury's The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks. However, the original 1948 edition omits this drink but does list a Vodka Martini. And even the Revised edition, alongside a Gin Martini recipe, states, with no reference to the Kangaroo 105 pages later, "Martinis are also sometimes made with some other liquor substituted for gin as a base - particularly a liquor of neutral flavor such as vodka or tequila." How "neutral" tequila is in flavour is also arguable.
