Ampersand Cocktail – Classic Early 1900s Waldorf Astoria Recipe

The Ampersand was invented sometime in the early 1930s. The oldest known printed reference to it is the 1935 Waldorf-Astoria bar book. This drink is pretty awesome but unfortunately it didn’t last long as Old Tom Gin stopped being produced 15 years after the book’s publication. Old Tom gin wasn’t produced again until 2007.
