Twentieth Century

Twentieth Century gin and creme de cacao cocktail

This cocktail was invented in 1937 to commemorate the Twentieth Century Limited train line that ran from Chicago to New York City. It’s such a strange combination of ingredients, so we were almost put off from trying it – we’re so glad we did! With a sweet tonic wine like Lillet Blanc, the drink is perfectly balanced – not too sweet, not too tart, with the faintest finish of chocolate. Superb!

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass, coupé glass, or a bucket for all you’ll care; this drink is so delicious it transcends presentation.

If we can stand to wait to extra ten seconds, we often flame a piece of citrus peel over the drink and drop it in.
