Charlie Chaplin | Cocktail Party

Charlie Chaplin

Neat story about Charlie Chaplin: he was an unwitting target of the “May 15 Incident” of 1932, a coup d’état that ended in the assassination of the Prime Minister of Japan.

The plan for the assassination included the death of Charlie Chaplin, designed to provoke war with the United States. Lucky Charlie – he was off watching a sumo match with the Prime Minister’s son at the time of the attack, and went on to live for many happy decades.

The origins of this drink go all the way back to the 1920s, when it was first concocted at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel. Early versions of the recipe are far too sweet; we prefer Gaz Regan’s “perfect” recipe from The Joy of Mixology.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Finally great cocktail app

I was so tired in these obnoxious subscription based apps. It was really hard to find this one. Works really well and interface is clean and understandable! Thank you!
