The Charlie Chaplin was created at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel just before prohibition and at the very height of Chaplin’s silver screen fame.
It’s not known whether it became Chaplin’s drink of choice but with its elegant mix of sweetness from the Hayman’s Sloe Gin and Apricot Liqueur and a snap of tartness from the freshly squeezed lemon juice, this drink is still a truly great entertainer.
