The 20th Century is a underrated classic cocktail created for the fabulous Art Deco bullet-nosed New York Hudson train engine that ran the Chicago to New York 20th Century Limited line starting in 1938.
Lacking a few critical ingredients, I improvised, naming this variant after a Floridian train.
- 1 oz gin
- 3/4 oz creme de cacao
- 1/4 oz triple sec
- 1 oz grapefruit juice
Combine in a shaker over ice, shake until cold, and serve in a martini glass. Garnish with a twist of grapefruit or lemon if available.
