History For Bloodhound Drink
The Bloodhound drink is done with gin, dry vermouth, sweet vermouth, and crushed strawberries.
Many people find the cocktail, which is usually garnished with strawberries, to be an acquired taste.
The Duke of Manchester is credited as the inventor of this cocktail in Harry McElhone’s 1922 Mixing Cocktails, although William Boothby listed a Bloodhound cocktail in his 1907 World Drinks, and Tom Bullock featured it in his 1917 The Ideal Bartender, thus the origins of this cocktail are still a bit hazy.
In the 1920s, Bloodhound was at the pinnacle of its popularity in London.
