Harry Craddock is credited for creating this classic cocktail at the Savoy Hotel in London in 1920. His 1930 publication The Savoy Cocktail Book is a beautiful piece of cocktail history. While getting your hands on an original will cost you a pretty penny, it’s worth taking a look at a reprint!


  • 3/4 oz Gin
  • 3/4 oz lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz Cointreau
  • 3/4 oz Lillet Blanc
  • Dash of absinthe


Shake all ingredients together and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a Luxardo cherry (optional).
