Review:

This is the kind of cocktail that many bartenders will want to stir rather than shake. However, it is classically shaken. Herbal, zesty and spirituous. Absinthe plays a key role but does not overwhelm.

History:

Despite its name, the Yellow Daisy is not a member of the daisy family of cocktails. Best described as a sweetened and aromatised Martini, It was a popular drink in the early 20th century and featured in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book accompanied by a notation saying the drink was the favourite of, and perhaps invented by, Richard William "Deadwood Dick" Clark. He was a famous larger-than-life wild west character of the day who mixed with the likes of Buffalo Bill and Calamity Jane.

YELLOW DAISY COCKTAIL.* (6 people)
2 Glasses Gin.
2 Glasses French Vermouth.
1 Glass Grand Marnier.
Before shaking add a dash of Absinthe.
*Not only the favourite drink, but also the one made famous, if not invented, by Richard William ("Deadwood Dick") Clark, recently deceased (84) : onetime Guster Scout, Pony Express rider, Deadwood Gulch stage-coach guard, inspiration for all the (64) Deadwood Dick novels of E. L. Wheeler; friend of Wild Westerners, Wild Bill Hickok, Buffalo Bill, Poker Alice Tubbs, Calamity Jane, Madame Mustache and Diamond Dick Turner of Norfolk, Neb. : Clark is buried on Sunrise Mountain, overlooking Deadwood Gulch, S. Dak.
