Happy Hour: The Old Etonian

Are you classy enough to try this cocktail tonight?

The Old Etonian derives from London, circa 1925, at Eton college. Alumni are dubbed “Old Etonians” and used to enjoy this cocktail at the nearby Garden Hotel. It’s a lovely fall drink because of the nutty notes but ultimately drinkable year ’round. If your date is a fan of cocktails, they’ll certainly be impressed by your insider knowledge and adventurous nature for ordering this. We don’t require that you cite us, either.
