The Millionaire Cocktail is a classic cocktail and one of those that has stood up to the tests of time and been adapted into many forms. This is the original Millionaire Cocktail No. 1 from the Harry Cradock's 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book. It is a lovely mix of sloe gin, apricot brandy and Jamaican rum.

There are quite a few different recipes that specify brands and change the ratio and you will also find a much different Millionaire around which can lead to some confusion.

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Total Time: 3 minutes

Yield: 1 Cocktail



  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.

Another Millionaire: "Dry Martini, with Grenadine on top"
