Claridge Cocktail

Claridge Cocktail.

The Claridge Cocktail is a successful evolution of the Martini Cocktail and was created in the 1920s in Paris at the Claridge Hotel.

30 ml Rutte dry gin
30 ml Dolin Blanc vermouth
15 ml Morand apricotine
15 ml Combier triple sec

Preparation: Stirred.

The Claridge Cocktail dates back to the 1920s. It was first published in “The Buckstone Book of Cocktails”, published in London in 1925. A year later, Harry McElhone states that the cocktail came from Leon, a bartender at the Claridge Hotel in Paris, located on the Avenue des Champs Élysées. In 1931, Dominique Migliorero is more specific and gives the last name of the bartender. It is Leon Ferrari from Paris.

Leon Ferrari

Both Leon Ferrari and Harry MeElhone took part in the first international cocktail championship for professional bartenders in 1929, which was held under the auspices of the magazine “La semaine à Paris”. On this occasion, Leon Ferrari is briefly presented in the magazine:

La semaine à Paris. No. 347, January 1929, page 56. Léon Ferrari.
La semaine à Paris. No. 347, January 1929, page 56. Léon Ferrari. [1-57]

„léon ferrari (from the Guarani) While the cocktail was completely ignored by the French, Léon Ferrari – “Léon” for his ilk – had already become a shaker virtuoso in contact with the Americans and the English. Very well known among the elegant clientele of the big bars, we see him successively at the Casino Municipal de Nice, the Negresco, the Ruhl, the Royal, the Casino of Cannes and Enghien, then, back in Paris, we see him at Fouquet’s, the Volterra, the Napoleon and the Claridge. After years of hard work, he has managed to create his own independence and now he works at home in the bar “Guarani” in a simple and tasteful environment. The Guarani is the first South American restaurant in Paris and the meeting place for the South American colony as they walk through Paris. It is also a very select bar and the restaurant owner does not disdain to still shake there or prepare in the tumbler to offer you his latest creations: “El Gaucho”, the “Guarini”, the “Gabis-Flips”, etc., etc….“

„léon ferrari (du Guarani) Alors que le cocktail était totalement ignoré des Français, Léon Ferrari – «Léon» pour ses familiers – au contact des Américans et des Anglais était déjà devenu un virtuose du shaker. Très connu par l’élégante clientèle des grands bars, nous le voyons passer successivement au Casino Municipal de Nice, au Negresco, au Ruhl, au Royal, au Casino de Cannes et d’Enghien, puis, revenu à Paris, nous de voyons au Fouquet’s, au Volterra, au Napoléon et au Claridge. Il a su se créer une indépendance après des années de travail acharné, et maintenant il opère chez lui au bar «Guarani», dans un cadre sobre et de bon goût. Guarani est le premier restaurant sud-américain de Paris et le rendez-vous de la colonie sud-américaine de passage à Paris. C’est aussi un bar très sélect et le patron ne dédaigne pas d’y manier encore shaker ou tumbler pour vous offrir ses dernières créations: «El Gaucho», le «guarini», le «Gabis-Flips», etc., etc…“ [1-57]

Variants

It is interesting to note that the Claridge Hotel Cocktail, published in 1934, is something quite different, and probably belongs to London’s Claridge’s.

The Claridge Cocktail is sometimes also called the Frankenjack Cocktail. This also occurs for the first time in 1925 in the “Buckstone Book of Cocktails”. If one then considers the statement from 1928 by Judge Jr. according to which the Frankenjack Cocktail was invented by the two owners of a very well-known speakeasy bar in New York, one can assume that the same recipe was perhaps invented in parallel, and not simply copied and advertised under a different name.

It is even known as the Frankenstein Cocktail. It was first referred to as such in “The How and When” from 1938. Presumably they thought Frankenstein was a better name than Frankenjack and changed the name for that reason?

The Brandy Problem

The cocktail is a good example of what we call the brandy problem, namely: is a fruit eau de vie meant, or a brandy flavoured with apricots? Unfortunately, the English term “brandy” is not clear. So the recipes offer some room for interpretation. In this case, we chose Abricotine, a fruit eau de vie made from Valais apricots. With the Triple Sec, enough sweetness is added so that one should do without additional sugar with the apricot.

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.
