Review:

As the name suggests this is made for late-night sipping but, this delicately balanced sweet 'n' sour gin and cognac-laced cocktail is equally enjoyable served as an aperitivo or even for breakfast.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in a 1935 souvenir pamphlet from the famous Sloppy Joe's bar in Havana, Cuba (courtesy of Beachbum Berry's Potions of the Caribbean).
