Fin de Siecle

  • Base Spirit Gin
  • Preparation Stirred
  • Flavor Bitter
  • Served Up

Fin de Siecle is French for “end of the century.” The drink is believed to date a bit later, a Prohibition era staple later featured in Albert Stevens Crockett’s The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book. (Note the “old”in the title referencing the original Waldorf which had been demolished a few years earlier.)

The drink offers a bittersweet take on the martini.
