Αξιολόγηση:

Stir or shake (as originally stipulated in The Savoy Cocktail Book) this cocktail is still boozy. However, it's also wonderfully aromatic with all three ingredients combining harmoniously.

Ιστορία:

The Twelve Miles Out is one of several Prohibition-era cocktails whose name references the distance from a shore that a nation's territorial waters. During the 18th century this was established as three nautical miles (5.6 km), the distance a cannonball could be shot from the shore to repel incursions. Hence, during Prohibition, US jurisdiction was limited to three miles offshore so allowing the legal supply of alcohol to parties on board boats just outside territorial waters.

As the number of offshore parties grew, the US negotiated agreements with countries such as the UK and France to recognize the right of the American authorities to enforce Prohibition and anti-smuggling laws to an extended 12-mile limit. Predictably, the parties moved further off-shore. On 29th December 1988, President Reagan extended the territorial waters of the United States to 12 miles from 3 miles.

The notoriety of the three-mile and then 12-mile limit to the reach of the Feds during Prohibition led to the Three Miller/Three Mile Limit, the Twelve Miles Out, and the Twelve Mile Limit cocktails.

Recipe adapted from Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book where this cocktail is shaken rather than stirred.
