This bourbon rather than rye take on this cocktail is adapted from Stanley Clisby Arthur's 1937 book Famous New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix 'Em in which he wrote, "This is the special cocktail served at Restaurant de la Louisiane, one of the famous French restaurants of New Orleans, long the rendezvous of those who appreciate the best in Creole cuisine."
