The Charlie Chaplin was created at New York City’s Waldorf Astoria hotel prior to the 1920s. It was featured in the 1934 Old Waldorf Astoria Bar Book but a later revision altered the proportions. Due to the sugar content of the apricot liqueur and sweetness imparted by the sloe gin, ideal dilution is key to a great drink.
- 30 ml Sloe Gin
- 30 ml Apricot Brandy Liqueur
- 30 ml Lime Juice
- Combine all the ingredients into your cocktail shaker
- Shake with ice for 12-15 seconds
- Fine strain into a chilled cocktail glass
