Αξιολόγηση:

The bitters play a crucial role in the balance of this after-dinner brandy and pineapple cocktail.

Ιστορία:

An East India (No.2) classically has pineapple syrup or pineapple juice, while an East India No.1 instead calls for raspberry syrup. Pineapple syrup is first recorded in an East India in Robert Vermeire's 1922 Cocktails: How to Mix Them and is repeated in Frank Meier's 1936 The-Artistry of Mixing Drinks and it's Meier, who worked at Ritz Bar, Paris from 1921 to 1947, who is said to have introduced pineapple to this cocktail.

In his 1923 Harry of Ciros ABC-of-mixing-cocktails Harry MacElhone also uses pineapple syrup in his East India, which, like the above, is otherwise pretty much the same as Harry Johnson's 1882 East India No.1, indeed MacElhone credits the recipe to Johnson.

Harry Craddock's influential 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book stipulates pineapple juice in place of pineapple syrup, and this is repeated in other cocktail books which follow, including W.J. Tarling's 1937 Café Royal Cocktail Book. I've honoured all the above by using both pineapple juice and syrup in my version of an East India.
