One of the old classics from Jerry Thomas, the Holland Cocktail is one of the few gin cocktails made with Genever before Old Tom Gin and London Dry became popular. Dating back to the 1800s this cocktail was first published in Jerry Thomas’s first edition of the Bartender’s Guide in 1862. A modified, or improved, version of this would be printed 2 years after Jerry Thomas’s death in the 1887 edition.
