Oriental

Our Comment:

In his 1948 The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, David Embury says of the Alaska, "This is also sometimes called the Oriental. It can be greatly improved by using less Chartreuse and adding 1 or 2 parts dry sherry. This is the Nome."

Variant:

Nome

About:

Adapted from a recipe in the 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book, where Harry Craddock writes, "so far as can be ascertained this delectable potion is NOT the staple diet of the Esquimaux. It was probably first thought of in South Carolina – hence its name." Craddock calls for this cocktail to be shaken.
