Holland House

Invented at the Holland House in New York City by George Kappeler, this was first published in his 1900 book Modern American Drinks. While also being named after the Holland House building, this was also their house cocktail made with Holland-style gin, so the name of this drink kind of covers all its bases. This is a beautiful cocktail with a taste of Martini meets Gin Sour.
