Named after Lewis Carroll's Jabberwoky poem, this recipe is adapted from one in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book which calls for a now defunct product called Caperitif. A notation accompanies Craddock's recipe, "This will made you gyre and gimble in the wabe until brillig all right, all right." Proving that be was a Lewis Carroll fan.
