First printed 2 years after Jerry Thomas’s death, the Improved Holland Cocktail was a variation of his original Holland Cocktail. This cocktail gets its’ name from the fact that back then Genever was thought of as a Dutch liquor, similar to how rum is so closely associated with the Caribbean. Not too many Genever cocktails would be made during this time period because Old Tom Style Gin and London Dry Gin would soon became the preferred gin for mixing.
