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.


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.
