This simple “gin and juice” concoction was a hit among the scores of illegal drinkers during the years of Prohibition. While there’s not a lot of history behind the cocktail itself, aside from being named as one of the worst drinks of the decade in 1934 by Esquire magazine (along with the Bronx, the Brandy Alexander and the Clover Club), it has been a part of a number of different historical figures’ lives.
