Southern Traction

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.
