Adonis Cocktail

The sweet version of the Bamboo Cocktail is no less worthy of attention. The Adonis Cocktail can be traced back to 1887 and is also known under other names such as Armour Cocktail or Duke of Marlborough Cocktail. Let’s take a look at its origins.

With this cocktail, as with its dry relative, the Bamboo Cocktail, there is some confusion about the name. So in the following we have to try to untangle this almost Gordian knot. With regard to the recipes, however, there is agreement. The cocktail consists of sherry, (Italian) vermouth and orange bitters. There are some variations in which mainly curaçao is added, but the resulting recipes actually no longer have anything to do with the original and have usually also been given a different name. We also picked them out and did not want to discard them again; they are therefore included in the appendix.

The naming

The first naming of an Adonis cocktail

The Sun, 27. März 1887, Page 9. Pearls from Billy, the Bartender.
The Sun, 27. März 1887, Page 9. Pearls from Billy, the Bartender. [1]

According to our research, an Adonis cocktail was first mentioned in the New York “The Sun” on 27 March 1887. There we read: “Billy, the dandy Nassau street bartender, rosy checked and neat as a pin in his snowwhite aprons and scintillating diamond stud, was standing in statuesque repose behind the the polished mahogany bar one day last week, when three young bloods, with bell-crowned beavers of matchless sheen and silver-headed canes of ultra fashionable immensity, walked in. “Three Adonis cocktails, please,” exclaimed the leader of the procession, leaning languidly against the mahogany rail. “Three which?” said Billy, straightening out with a look of searching inquiry at the faces of his new customers. “Adonis cocktails, I said,” replied the first dude, knitting his eyebrows. “Certainly, sir,” briskly retorted Billy as he reached out for the silver drink slinger. “I didn’t catch the first name. I beg pardon.” He slung some white of egg into a goblet from a glass bottle deftly, dumped some sugar on top of that, poured in an installment of lemon juice, then a liberal flood of Old Tom gin, and topped the mixture off with a dose of vermouth and stomach bitters. Then he packed the glass full to the brim with cracked ice, clapped the sliver mixer over the top tightly, and shook it with both hands for a couple of minutes. “A very fine bracer and appetizer that, gentlemen,” he said, as he pored the cool mixture into three cocktail glasses with an easy swing of his hand. There was enough of the drink to just fill the glasses and no more. The dudes smacked their lips, planked down fifteen cents each, and wafted themselves quietly out. “What on earth is an Adonis cocktail?” asked the reporter who had watched the incident. “Blessed if I know,” said Billy, with an air of perfect frankness; “but I wouldn’t be much of a bartender if I let any customer bluff me off with any new-fangled name. I gave them what I always have known as a turf club cocktail, and it suited. The first principle of good bartending is to know how to make everything on earth in the drink line, no matter whether you have ever heard of it before or not.”[1]

Unfortunately, we don’t know what the customers understood by an Adonis Cocktail. Certainly not a Turf Cocktail or a variation thereof.

This story reminds us of another newspaper article which, although it has nothing to do with the Adonis cocktail, presents a comparable situation and is not devoid of comedy. The story is about a guest in a small Connecticut town in 1889 who orders a Manhattan in the local bar and we read: “the bartender seemed dazed for a moment. … But the bartender soon rallied and began making the drink. In a large heavy “schooner” glass, he proceeded to place three or four lumps of white sugar, and saturated them with a liberal supply of bitters, enough for a dozen cocktails. Over this he poured some whiskey, added a gill or so of rum, put in a dash of brandy, and poured over all a wineglass of gin. Then he squeezed half a lemon into the mixture, shook it well together, and poured the whole foaming liquid into a beer glass. The prematurely tender young man had seen the operation, and had misgivings as to how the “cocktail” would act upon him, but, with the interest of the town centered upon him, he could not back down. He had called for a Manhattan cocktail; there was a Manhattan cocktail on the bar, and he closed his eyes and drank it. Then he went out into the front room, sat down by the stove, and meditated upon the wickedness of the world.” And the bartender boasted afterwards: “”Did you see that feller from York come in here and ask for a Manhattan cocktail?” he asked the other patrons. “Tryin’ to guy me. Thought I was green. But I was on to him like a fly. I fixed him. Gave him everything in the place. Gin, whiskey, rum, everything. Mixed it all up, and gave it to him. Set it on the bar, and he drank it. See him? Didn’t know the difference. These fly fellers can’t beat me. Manhattan cocktail! Huh! ain’t no such thing.”[2]

This story was also about a guest in a bar who ordered a cocktail unknown to the bartender, a Manhattan cocktail. Instead, he received a mixture of sugar, bitters, whiskey, rum, brandy, gin and lemon juice. Afterwards, the bartender boasted that he had given this guest a run for his money. The latter came along, ordered a drink that didn’t even exist because he wanted to show him off, but not with him! The guest had received his drink, had drunk it, and had not even recognised the difference, because there was no such thing as a Manhattan cocktail!

So we can assume that there must have been a “new-fangled” Adonis Cocktail already in 1887, but unfortunately we don’t know how it should have been prepared correctly. But more about that later.

The naming in historical recipes

Let’s return to the original question of what the drink we are discussing in this article should actually be called. To be clear, we need to get an overview. There are numerous recipe variations, but for this consideration we have limited ourselves to those recipes that are prepared from sherry, vermouth, optionally bitters, without added sugar. The use of the names is as shown in the diagram below. Under “Other” we include those recipes whose name has been published no more than 3 times. There are 26 different names.

Adonis Cocktail – Naming.

Bamboo Cocktail and Boston Bamboo Cocktail

Western Kansas World, 11. September 1886, Page 2.
Western Kansas World, 11. September 1886, Page 2. [14]

What can we deduce from this? First of all, unfortunately, it was not always specified exactly which vermouth and which sherry were to be used. We can only guess and assume that “vermouth” meant an Italian, sweet vermouth. Presumably, then, it will have been the same for the Bamboo Cocktail and the Boston Bamboo Cocktail that we read about in the newspapers before 1900. [14] [15]

St. Paul Daily Globe, 19. September 1886 Page 16.
St. Paul Daily Globe, 19. September 1886 Page 16. [15]

However, we are not allowed to call the drink Bamboo Cocktail, because this refers to a dry cocktail. We have already described this confusion in detail in our article on the Bamboo Cocktail. So this naming is out of the question for our drink.

Marine Cocktail

Pittsburg Dispatch, 28. Juli 1889, Page 15.
Pittsburg Dispatch, 28. Juli 1889, Page 15. [3]

An alternative name would be the “Marine Cocktail”. In the Pittsburg Dispatch of 28 July 1889, a York bartender is quoted as saying: “Lots of men come in here and call for a ‘marine cocktail,’ an odd fancy of mine, composed of sherry, vermouth and orange bitters, with a spoonful of ice.[3] EIf we disregard the Bamboo Cocktail, this is the oldest name for a drink made of sherry, Italian vermouth and orange bitters that we can find. However, it has not been able to establish itself. Whether the unnamed bartender really invented the drink, and whether he was inspired by the Bamboo Cocktail, we cannot trace. However, his drink does not seem to have become really famous, because we have not found any other reference for a marine cocktail.

Arkwood

In 1895, the recipe appears as Arwood, which is similar to an Adonis. For an Arkwood, a little sugar syrup is added. It is published two more times, in 1902 and 1933. This is neither the oldest nor the most frequently used name, and therefore it is not considered further.

Armour Cocktail

In 1898, another name appeared. In the anonymously published book “Cocktails” we find the name Armour Cocktail for the first time. It is used regularly in the following years and therefore seems to us to be a name that has caught on, and is obviously the first independent name for a cocktail made from Italian vermouth and sherry. As we see in the statistics, although the name “Bamboo Cocktail” is the most frequently used, this is not really correct, because it should be understood to mean a dry drink, and therefore it should not be used for the sweet variant. We have already addressed this confusion in our post on the Bamboo Cocktail. There we also explain that the Reform Cocktail is nothing other than a Bamboo Cocktail. So this name for a sweet variant cannot be used either.

Adonis Cocktail

Also more commonly used than Armour Cocktail is the name Adonis Cocktail. However, since the Armour Cocktail is the older name in the recipe books, we tend to give preference to the latter. But as we will see later, the matter is not that simple.

Other names

We must also exclude Harvard Cocktail or Harward Cocktail as a naming convention, because numerous, fundamentally different drinks are grouped together under this name. It seems to be a hodgepodge for all kinds of drinks, and everyone seems to have understood something different by it. We do not want to go into detail here, but only mention a few recipes as examples. In 1904 at John Applegreen’s it is a drink made of sherry, Italian vermouth, orange bitters, so exactly what we are looking for. In 1902, in “Fancy Drinks”, Curaçao is also added. In 1912, in “Wehman Bros.’ Bartenders’ Guide”, it is a mixture of bitters, sugar syrup, vermouth and brandy. In 1924, León Pujol and Oscar Muñez mean something with Apple Jack and lemon. In Crockett’s 1931 it is again prepared with bitters, vermouth and brandy and topped up with the siphon. In 1933 in The Home Bartender, it’s a drink made with French vermouth with rye whiskey and grenadine. So we would do well not to take a closer look at this catch-all, as it seems to have little constructive or enlightening to contribute.

From 1900 onwards, other names gradually appeared, but only sporadically, such as Alaska, Border Cocktail, Cherie, Duc, East India Cocktail, Galathie Cocktail, General Brock, Golden Bell Cocktail, La Pirouette, Larchmont Cocktail, Lobo Del Mar Cocktail, Merry Widdow, Rocio Coctail, Sandeman Cocktail, Sherrio Cocktail, Sherry Cocktail, Sherry No. 2, Spanish Cocktail, The Wop, Topaz Cocktail and Vermouth Sherry Cocktail. There is also – listen and be amazed – a Martini Cocktail No. 2 on offer as a naming. However, all these names appear no more than three times, some of them are obviously mislabelled, and so we best ignore them. The designation Duke of Marlborough Cocktail occurs somewhat more frequently, but this is also nothing other than an Armour Cocktail.

Where does the name come from?

While we argue that the cocktail should correctly be called the Armour Cocktail based on what we have found in bar books, it is also known by many as the Adonis Cocktail. Therefore, for both names, we want to go into where the name comes from. Perhaps this will help us to weigh the two names against each other.

Armour Cocktail

Cattle waiting to be slaughtered at the Union Stock Yards in 1909.
Cattle waiting to be slaughtered at the Union Stock Yards in 1909. [6]

The Armour Cocktail seems to have its origins in Chicago, or at least to refer to that city. In the 1930 book “The Home-Bartender’s Guide” by Charlie Roe and Jim Schwenck we read: “You need armor to withstand this one. Back of the stockyards out in Chicago, they used to drink one of these before breakfast, and go out and look for a policeman to beat up. P.S. – They still do it.“. Let’s put his statement in historical context: around 1900, the city became the main hub for Midwestern products, especially livestock. Within a few decades, the Union Stock Yards had developed into the world’s most important slaughterhouses, and by 1900 up to 12 million animals were slaughtered annually and over 80% of American meat was processed industrially in assembly line production. [5]

Armour & Company circa 1910.

This derivation of the name “Armour Cocktail” in connection with the stockyards does not explain itself quite conclusively and will not quite hit the truth. But a year later, in 1931, Albert Stevens Crockett in his “The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book” gives us the crucial clue on page 102: “For example, take the Armour; called after a well known Chicago patron of the establishment.” So the cocktail is named after a well known patron of the Waldorf-Astoria. Despite the year of publication, 1931, we refer to the time before Prohibition, i.e. 1919 and before.

Jonathan Ogden Armour, 1917.
Jonathan Ogden Armour, 1917. [8]

Unfortunately, he does not tell us the exact name of the guest. However, we find the decisive clue in the photo of the Union Stock Yards that we have reproduced: in the background there is a large lettering on a factory, we read “Armour” there. The search quickly leads to a connection with the meat processing industry, as Jim Schwenck brought into play.

Jonathan Ogden Armour, born in 1863, was a magnate in meat processing and became president of Armour & Company in 1901, succeeding his father who died that year. During his tenure, his company grew from a medium-sized meat processor to the largest food company in the US. His family moved to Chicago in 1865, and the company headquarters were moved from Milwaukee to Chicago in 1867.

In the post-war period, between 1919 and 1921, Jonathan Ogden Armour lost most of his fortune. Previously, he had been the second richest man in the world. He lost his position as president of the company in 1923 and died in London on 16 August 1927. [9]

So we have two independent sources that directly or indirectly prove that the Armour Cocktail was named after Jonathan Ogden Armour and his company respectively. This derivation can therefore be regarded as secure and reliable.

Adonis Cocktail

However, Albert Stevens Crockett lists not only the Armour Cocktail but also the Adonis Cocktail in his “The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book” in 1931. We have put forward the thesis that both are identical in principle, and that Armour Cocktail is the preferred name because it is the older one. But how does Albert Stevens Crocket see the differences? For him, the Armour Cocktail is prepared from one part sherry, one part Italian vermouth and two Dash Orange Bitters. For him, the Adonis Cocktail is prepared – hear, hear – in exactly the same way. So there are no differences for him either, and he allows both names to be synonymous with each other. He also kindly gives us an explanation for the origin of the name of the Adonis Cocktail from page 115:

Henry E. Dixey as Adonis.
Henry E. Dixey as Adonis. [10]

Named in honor of a theatrical offering which made at least two persons famous. One was Henry E. Dixey, a handsome and talented actor, long on Broadway; the other was Fanny Ward. Yes, Fanny Ward! One doesn’t see as much of Fanny these days as one did when she played Cupid-speaking literally, that is, for Fanny in the play was Cupid. Fanny discovered England late in the last century, married a South African millionaire and had a bijou house in Berkeley Square. Her daughter married a peer. She herself is now teaching Paris, London and New York-and even Hollywood-that sixty years means nothing, if you know what to do.

So, according to him, the cocktail was named “Adonis Cocktail” in honour of a play. At least two people achieved fame with this play, namely Henry E. Dixey and Fanny Ward. The reference to Fanny Ward is certainly not entirely wrong at this point. Born in 1872, she made her debut in 1890 and subsequently appeared with Henry E. Dixey in the Broadway production of Adonis. [16] [17]

Henry E. Dixey.

So if the Adonis Cocktail is in any way connected to Fanny Ward, it can only have been created after 1890. But is this really the case? We think not. Let’s turn to Henry E. Dixey’s biography, because that will clear things up.

Henry E. Dixey was born in Boston in 1859, and also made his debut there in 1868. He acted in many musicals, was on stage until 1926, and also acted in a few films, but his most famous role was that of Adonis in the musical of the same name. He played Adonis from 1884 to 1885, and occasionally after that. The musical ran at the Bijou Theatre on Broadway for 19 months from 4 September 1884 until April 1886, giving a total of 603 performances, making it the first Broadway show to play over 500 times. [11] [13] [18] [19] [20]

Bijou Theatre, 1237-1239 Broadway, Manhattan.
Bijou Theatre, 1237-1239 Broadway, Manhattan. [21]

What does this tell us? For one thing, that Henry E. Dixey began playing his parade role, Adonis, in 1884. A cocktail named in his honour and in honour of the role will therefore in all likelihood have been created around the year 1884 to 1885, at the height of the Adonis craze. Usually, a cocktail is named after what is current and in the air, the spirit of the times.

How does this fit in with our sources? In the books, the Adonis Cocktail first appears with a recipe in 1913 by Jacques Straub. Rather late for a hit from the 1880s. But let’s remember the 1887 newspaper clipping in the New York Sun! For one thing, this article appeared in New York, which is where Broadway was and where the musical Adonis was playing. Why would the author of the article have written the story about the bartender and the Adonis cocktail, where was the entertainment value for the reader? Let’s imagine that every reader would have immediately understood what was meant by an Adonis Cocktail and that it was named after the musical. Only the bartender did not. And suddenly the newspaper article takes on an interesting direction and becomes entertaining! Even the headline suddenly appears in a completely different light: “Pearls from Billy, the Bartender. A Man of Power, Full of Beautifull Sentiments Concerning Mixed Drinks.” The story about the Adonis Cocktail becomes very funny all at once. And so does the rest of the story, because Billy lets us know that there is no school for bartenders, one simply learns by imitation and trial and error, and within only six months one has completely mastered all the mysteries: „In six months he will have mastered all the niche mysteries of the science of the agreeable combination of liquids, and he has risen from the dull level of the commonplace where the apprentice always begins, to the high plane of the complete bartender.“ And the story continues as the bartender prepares another concoction of his for the reporter, consisting of some sugar, lemon juice, bitters, egg white, Old Tom gin and chunks of ice. Asked what it was, the bartender replies that it is called “Nassau fizz in an iceberg” and that he would actually like to patent the drink.

We do not know what the visitors understood by an Adonis, but if we take Albert Stevens Crockett’s information into account, it is very likely that it is exactly the cocktail we are examining in this paper. Thus, Adonis Cocktail would indeed be the older name for the drink, although unfortunately no recipe has come down to us.

So which name is correct?

After all this confusion, let’s return to the question of the correct name for the cocktail. It is true that the Armour Cocktail first appeared in bar books in 1898, long before the Adonis Cocktail, whose recipe was first published in 1913. But taking into account the previous thoughts, it stands to reason that the Adonis Cocktail has been around since at least 1887, and thus deserves the honour. The Adonis Cocktail apparently has the older rights.

But taking a step back and looking at everything, it is not necessarily the case that the Adonis Cocktail was simply renamed to Armour Cocktail. It is probably much more likely that the combination of sherry and Italian vermouth simply originated in several places. In New York as an Adonis Cocktail, and why not also as a Marine Cocktail, and in Chicago as an Armour Cocktail. We’ll never know. In any case, the designation as an Adonis Cocktail has prevailed, and so let’s go with that.

What is the relationship with the Bamboo Cocktail?

A question may now be on the horizon, especially if you have read our post about the Bamboo Cocktail: Which of the two is now the older? The Bamboo Cocktail was first mentioned in the Western Kansas World on 11 September 1886. [14] We find the Adonis Cocktail for the first time on 27 March 1887 in the New York “The Sun”. [1] It is now difficult to judge which drink is the older one, and we do not wish to pass judgement. Did Louis Eppinger invent the Bamboo Cocktail, and the Adonis Cocktail is the sweet variation of it? Did Louis Eppinger take inspiration from the Adonis Cocktail and develop his dry version from it? Did the two come into being independently of each other? This is a riddle of cocktail history, and the answer will probably remain hidden forever.

Historical recipes

In the following list, we have only included recipes that correspond to an Adonis Cocktail, i.e. those made with (Italian) vermouth and sherry, optionally with orange bitters or sugar. All other variations are at the end of this article in a separate list or are assigned to the Bamboo Cocktail. We recommend looking there as well, since the recipes in the historical books are not clearly separated and there are many overlaps.

Named in honor of a theatrical offering which made at
least two persons famous. One was Henry E. Dixey, a
handsome and talented actor, long on Broadway; the other
was Fanny Ward. Yes, Fanny Ward! One doesn’t see as
much of Fanny these days as one did when she played
Cupid-speaking literally, that is, for Fanny in the play
was Cupid. Fanny discovered England late in the last cen-
tury, , married a South African millionaire and had a
bijou house in Berkeley Square. Her daughter married a
peer. She herself is now teaching Paris, London and New
York-and even Hollywood-that sixty years means noth-
ing, if you know what to do.

Observations
As the principal ingredients in this drink are
sweet wines, it will have the character of despon-
dency if nothing is added to liven it up. Orange
Bitters give it that needed vivacity and gayness.
However, Orange Bitters, a very strong and pen-
etrating aromatic, should be handled with great
care. Very little is needed, and an overdose will
spoil any drink. The similarity of color in the
component parts of this drink gives it a rather
dusky, yellowish tint, resembling that of the bam-
boo tree. Hence the name.

About

Hi, I'm Armin and in my spare time I want to promote bar culture as a blogger, freelance journalist and Bildungstrinker (you want to know what the latter is? Then check out "About us"). My focus is on researching the history of mixed drinks. If I have ever left out a source you know of, and you think it should be considered, I look forward to hearing about it from you to learn something new. English is not my first language, but I hope that the translated texts are easy to understand. If there is any incomprehensibility, please let me know so that I can improve it.
