Charlie Chaplin Cocktail


Cocktail Glass

Glass Guide- Cocktail Glass

The Charlie Chaplin Cocktail was one of the premier drinks of the Waldorf-Astoria prior to 1920. The equal mix of lime, apricot brandy and sloe gin is documented in A.S. Crockett's The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book and it's a nice, gentle mix, although rather thick and sweet. Of course the drink is named in honor of the famous actor Charlie Chaplin, but it's unclear if the drink made it into the comedian's repertoire.

  • lime peel for garnish
