Thinking that there were cocktail competitions all the way back in 1935, and that a winning cocktail from that era is still much enjoyable, is amusing.
And seeing that Swedish punsch was an internationally used ingredient already then is extra fun. Punsch has definitely become a cocktail ingredient of importance today, but already 1935 it was something to count with.
Orange juice in drinks has always scared us a bit. But the small amount in here is only nice. It counters the sweet punsch in a good way, plus it gives the cocktail a nice and bright colour.
Winning recipe from the 1935 edition of London Cocktail Competition
