Review:

Zest lime and dry vermouth balance the rich herbal and saffron notes of Bénédictine liqueur.

History:

Cocktail historian, David Wondrich, discovered this cocktail in an advertisement form Bénédictine liqueur published in the February 1935 edition of Esquire Magazine that reads "Here is the prize-winning recipe in a recent nation-wide cocktail contest."

The Queen Elizabeth was the winning cocktail in US cocktail competition organised by the liqueur brand. It was created the preceding year by Herbert L. Quick, then the head bartender at the Benjamin Franklin Hotel in Philadelphia. Herbert named his cocktail, not after any monarch, but after his wife, Elizabeth.
