A classic from the “Father of American Mixology”, Jerrry Thomas (at least as far as David Wondrich is concerned), but not his original recipe from 1862 or 1929 Bon Vivants Guide. By all means google it and you’ll find it on its actual pages in his book which then cos $2.50! (USD). Jerry used vanilla extract and sugar in his recipe, but this switched up somewhat. Researching this cocktail reminds me that while there are wonderful books from current day, paying homage to the greats and checking out their books in
total should not be overlooked.
