In the post about La Viña that I had at Hawthorne, I mentioned that it was Alex Day's riff on the Chaplin that appears in Robert Hess' The Essential Bartender's Guide. Since I had tried the variation, I was game to try the original that inspired Alex to create his recipe. Hess attributed the Chaplin to bartender Ben Dougherty at Seattle's Zig Zag Cafe, and he mentioned that at the time, it was "regularly one of their go-to drinks when a customer wants something just a bit different."
