Tovarishch, tovarisch or tovarish are all Russian for comrade, friend, colleague or ally. The naming of this cocktail, which first appears in Grosby Gaige's 1944 Standard Cocktail Guide, may have been inspired by Tovaritch, a 1933 play by Jacques Deval.

As near as we can figure-out when we were in this spot 1st time, 4 years ago, there wasn't anything red about the joint except the lips of the big buxom boisterous Caucasian singing-waitresses, gals who doubled in the chorus line when not trotting to our table from the kitchen or bar. They had all skipped-out of mujik-land a long time back and had no wish or intention of standing on the stepps again – being too damned happy where they all were right then. And please remember, this I must be very cold to taste correct.
