1 oz Tequila
1⁄2 oz Cynar
1⁄2 oz Sloe gin
1⁄2 oz Apricot liqueur
1⁄2 oz Lime juice

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.


I recently spotted a reference to Ted Haigh's Millionaire variation that reminded me of a Charlie Chaplin with its apricot, sloe, and lime. That got me motivated to riff on that trio of ingredients, and I latched onto the sloe gin aspect and decided to mash the Charlie Chaplin up with Phil Ward's Lipspin that complements the sloe gin with tequila and Cynar. For a name, I dubbed this after one of Charlie Chaplin's films and called it Caught in a Cabaret.
