After working Valentine's Day, I needed to treat myself to a drink. In perusing Paul Clarke's The Cocktail Chronicles book, I spotted the Cameron's Kick that I have neglected to make over the last decade or so. The original recipe stems from Harry MacElhone's 1922 Harry's ABCs of Mixing Cocktails and strangely informed the reader that orgeat is a syrup made from almonds despite it having been used for decades in cocktails since perhaps first published in 1862 with the Japanese Cocktail.
