Created in the 1920s by Harry MacElhone, owner of Harry′s New York Bar in Paris, the Monkey Gland is a gin-based cocktail made with orange juice, grenadine and absinthe.
Apparently, the cocktail was inspired by the experiments of Russian scientist Serge Voronoff. Long before Viagra, Voronoff was experimenting with various implants, the most famous of these was the grafting of monkey testicle tissue to human testicles. His hopes were to increase longevity, but his rather shocking technique only received considerable ridicule.
Created in 2008 by Simon Difford, the Biggles Aviation is a take on the popular Aviation, but with a gingery twist.
The Cinderella is a fruity and delicious sparkling mocktail that makes a fabulous non-alcoholic garden party drink.
