The Millionaire Cocktail is a classic cocktail, one of those that have stood up to the tests of time and been adapted into many forms. This recipe is the original Millionaire Cocktail No. 1 from the Harry Cradock's 1930 "Savoy Cocktail Book". The drink is a lovely mix of sloe gin, apricot brandy, and Jamaican rum.

There are quite a few different recipes that specify brands and change the ratio. You may also come across the whiskey  Millionaire, which can lead to some confusion.​


Steps to Make It

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.

  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

"The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book" identifies another type of Millionaire as a "Dry Martini, with Grenadine on top".
