The 20th century cocktail is a classic drink that has been around since the early 1900s. The cocktail was first published in 1937 in a cocktail book named “Cafe Royal Cocktail Book“ by William J. Tarling’s, but it was created by a British bartender named C.A. Tuck. The 20th Century Cocktail is known for its smooth, sweet taste and its ability to be enjoyed by both those who prefer strong drinks and those who are looking for something lighter.
