History:

Adapted from a recipe in Albert Stevens Crockett's 1931 book Ol Waldorf Astoria Bar Days:
"Southgate
One-fourth lump Sugar dissolved in one-half pony of Water
Dash of Boonekamp Bitters
One jigger Whiskey
One piece twisted Lemon Peel
"

What are today called Underburg bitters were originally called Underburg Boonekamp Bitters and "One-fourth lump Sugar dissolved in one-half pony of Water" is simply sugar syrup.
