A viscous, herbal, pre-prohibition cocktail - named after the brains behind and star of the Ziegfeld Follies.
|1||t||Maraschino Liqueur, Luxardo|
|1||t||Cognac, Pierre Ferrand 1840 (Original recipe calls for "Brandy.")|
|1||t||Curaçao, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao|
|1||t||Bitters, Boker's (I used Fee's Cardamom (Boker's Style))|
Stir and strain.
This is a small cocktail by today's standards. To scale it to more modern proportions, use 1 1/2 oz Chartreuse and 1/4 oz each of the other components.
Printed in "Down the Hatch!" in 1920 two years after the death of the actress/entertainer for which it was named.

- Syrupy and sweet.
- This is a bit thick and syrupy, but I find it has sufficient bitterness to balance the sweetness.
