Million Dollar Cocktail Recipe

A million dollar cocktail is one of the most iconic drinks in the world. There’s a bit of pineapple added to the gin, sweet vermouth, and egg white—and it’s a blast from the past. This recipe appears in Harry Craddock’s revered “Savoy Cocktail Book,” and Plymouth Gin is used. Despite this, the drink appears to have been created around the 1920s, although there are conflicting legends about its origin. This cocktail is said to have been invented by Ngiam Tong Boon, a Singapore bartender in the early 20th century. According to the other account, it is the creation of Louis Eppinger, a bartender at the Grand Hotel in Yokohama, Japan, who made his mark on the bartending scene with the bamboo cocktail. Currently, most cocktail historians are of the opinion that it was Eppinger who invented the cocktail. There is no doubt that the million dollar cocktail is a great drink, regardless of who created it. Despite the fact that you will enjoy a very luxurious experience, it won’t cost very much.
