Created in 2016 by Seth Brammer at Filament, Dallas, Texas, USA. Seth’s original recipe uses the same proportions shown here but with Paul Beau VS cognac, Luxardo Sangue Morocco, Regan's Orange Bitters, Bakers bitters and Val de Mer Brut.
Adapted from a recipe by Charles H. Baker Junior. In his 1939 'The Gentleman's Companion' he writes of this drink, "a Hazy Memory of a Night in Havana during the Unpleasantnesses of 1933, when Each Swallow Was Punctuated with Bombs Going off on the Prado, or the Sound of 3" Shells Being Fired at the Hotel NACIONAL, then Haven for Certain Anti-Revolutionary Officers". The drink is named after the press slogan, which allegedly provoked the 1898 Spanish-American War.
Originally made at the Myrtle Bank Hotel, Kingston, Jamaica. Built in the mid-1800s, the Myrtle Bank, was converted from a shipyard into a select boarding house. After the hotel was destroyed in the 1907 earthquake it was reconstructed in 1918 and was then the largest hotel in Jamaica with 205 rooms and a filtered salt water pool.
Adapted from a drink created by Ali Reynolds at Hawksmoor, London, England where this drink is described as being “A variation on the Manhattan that Mad Men and Goodfellas would have enjoyed at the end of a hard day’s work.”
Adapted from a recipe created by Georgia Billing at The Looking Glass Cocktail Club, London, England. Georgia's original and authentic recipe calls for Gravino Cherry wine (not cherry brandy), Reina Lab Spiced Rosemary syrup (rather than cinnamon sugar syrup) and the addition of her own Reina Lab Sinner Bitters.
