East India House

It was in in "The Gentleman's Companion, by Charles H. Baker Jr. that I first encountered the "East India House Cocktail", and immediately fell in love with it. It has a wonderful flavor and is what I refer to as an "approachable" cocktail which would be suitable to both beginners as well as experienced drinkers. Mr. Baker describes the drink as: "Being one for any man's book, & garnered in The Royal Bombay Yacht Club, India (1932)."
