A few versions of the Tipperary cocktail have surfaced in classic cocktail books. This version was originally present in hugo ensslin’s Recipes for Mixed Drinks (1916). While the original recipe called for equal parts, the one appearing above is an all around better drink (the other is too sweet to my tastes and the Irish whiskey is overpowered by the Chartreuse. Try it both way though, why not). Others credit harry mcelhone for the creation. Two versions of the recipe later appear in the more famous Savoy Cocktail Book.
