After the Army & Navy, I reached for Tom Sandham's World's Best Cocktails and spotted a modern riff on a classic, namely the 20th Century. Here, Brian Miller from Pegu Club and Death & Co. swapped the original's gin and Lillet for Bourbon and Dubonnet or Lillet Rouge, respectively, and renamed it the 19th Century. The 19th Century is a drink that has not appeared on the blog to date, but it is one that we had at home before we started including such items here (in addition to the drinks we had out). I do mention the drink in a Bourbon Corpse Reviver #2 riff that Sam Treadway made me at Drink shortly before we made the 19th Century at home. Since we lack a fresh bottle of Dubonnet or Lillet Rouge, I opted for another quinquina -- Bonal.
