The Twentieth Century cocktail is a gem in the list of classic drinks. The mix of gin and chocolate are amazing together and as Gary Regan points out in Joy of Mixology, the lemon "acts as a foil to the sweet liqueur." It seems that the genius behind the Twentieth Century was C.A. Truck, according to William J Tarling's 1937 Cafe Royal Cocktail Book - a compilation of drinks from the bars of London.
