SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.
Dilution is key to this fruity bitter-sweet cocktail, hence the possible need to add some water depending on your ice.
Created and originally served at New York's old Waldorf-Astoria prior to 1920. This recipe is adapted from Albert Stevens Crocketts 1935 'The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book'. The drink is named after Sir Charles Spencer 'Charlie' Chaplin (1889-1977), the English slapstick comic actor of the silent film era, who was at the height of his career when this eponymous cocktail was created.
