How to make:
SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.
|3/4 fl oz||Giffard Abricot du Roussillon liqueur|
|3/4 fl oz||Portobello Road Sloe & Blackcurrant Gin|
|3/4 fl oz||Lime juice (freshly squeezed)|
|1/2 fl oz||Chilled water (omit if wet ice)|
Dilution is key to this fruity sweet 'n' sour cocktail, hence, depending on your ice, the Charlie Chaplin may benefit from the addition of a splash of water prior to stirring.
Created and originally served at New York's old Waldorf-Astoria prior to 1920. This recipe is adapted from Albert Stevens Crockett's 1935 The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book. The drink is named after Sir Charles Spencer 'Charlie' Chaplin (1889-1977), the English slapstick comic actor of the silent film era, who was at the height of his career when this eponymous cocktail was created.
