Paradise Cocktail – Original 1917 Hugo Ensslin Recipe

For this one think really strong screwdriver. This cocktail is from Hugo Ensslin’s 1917 book Recipes for Mixed drinks. I really like a lot of his cocktails, they are a good balance of flavor and strength. The other really cool part of his book is it is the last American cocktail book to be published before prohibition. So it serves as a nice time capsule of cocktails during the height of the temperance movement right before alcohol was national outlawed.
