Review:

Best described as "A vodka daiquiri with a hint of herbal peppermint courtesy of Galliano."

History:

Created by "C. S. Berner", this cocktail first appears as the winning cocktail at a 1950 bartender's competition in The U.K.B.G. Guide to Drinks 1st edition published 1953 [and not in Ted Saucier's 1951 Bottoms Up! as we were previously led to believe. Having checked, I can't see it in Saucier's book.]

U.K.B.G., U.S.A. (West Coast) Cocktail Competition, 1950
"Bernice"

Shake well 1 oz. Vodka (Smirnoff), 1/2 oz. Galliano Liqueur, 3 drops Veritas (Pernod Fils), juice of 1/2 lime.
