This wonderful classic was created in the early 1920’s for actor Charles Hawtrey by Ada Coleman, a bartender at Rupert D’Oyly Carte’s American Bar at the Savoy Hotel in London. This simple concoction is essentially a sweet martini with added complexity, depth, and hint of bitter from the Fernet. It is one of our favorites. Enjoy!
