Three readers love this post.
Not named after the great Tony Bennett, but rather a Chilean millionaire from the prohibition era. The earliest appearance of this drink comes from Robert Vermeire’s 1935 tome Cocktails, How to Mix Them. Basically a Daiquiri made with gin instead of rum, plus a few dashes of orange bitters, this is a simple, yet effective drink.
Maybe I should become a millionaire too.
0.5oz lime juice
0.5oz simple syrup
2 dashes orange bitters
Shake with ice an strain into chilled cocktail glass.
