A Charlie Chaplin cocktail is a perfect transitional cocktail


The Charlie Chaplin cocktail was a favorite at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York prior to 1920. Sipping this pre-Prohibition libation reveals layers of tart, ripe apricot, spiced plum and orchard fruit flavors, perfect for enjoying as summer gives way to fall. In a shaker, combine 1 ounce Hayman’s sloe gin, 1 ounce Rothman & Winter Orchard Apricot liqueur and 1 ounce lime juice and serve in a cocktail glass.
