The Puritan

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

Lowell Edmund’s excellent volume, Martini, Straight Up: The Classic American Cocktail states The Puritan first appeared in print in Fredrick L. Knowles 1900 The Cocktail Book: A Sideboard Manual for Gentlemen. Fittingly, Knowles’ work was published by a Boston imprint.

The cocktail features some serious herbacious flavors from the Yellow Chartreuse; so, please opt for a crisper London Dry Gin.
