Review:

Rich aged rum and port are the base and body of this delicious fizz. No need for all that rose water malarkey, the rum and port are plenty flavoursome without embellishment.

History:

Cocktail historian, David Wondrich, says this classic "was known (as a Chicago import) at New York's pre-Prohibition Waldorf-Astoria bar." Since Prohibition, it has been somewhat forgotten.
