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