Millionaire Cocktail


A traditional sour recipe that came to light during the prohibition era. The Millionaire name has been utilised by a number of cocktails over the years - one of which calls for a Jamaican Rum, Sloe Gin and Apricot Brandy Liqueur (a rum variation on a Charlie Chaplin) - but this has been the most long standing recipe.
This has been adapted but the original recipe appeared in Harry McElhone's 1927 Barflies and Cocktails where it's credited to London's Ritz Hotel.
