A Churchill Cocktail, from the Savoy Hotel

The Savoy Hotel in London boasts the American Bar — one of the world's most venerable drinking establishments.

Irishman Joe Gilmore was head barman at the American Bar, with a terrifically long tenure.

He created any number of cocktails for stars of the stage and screen, royalty, and politicians. And, of course, Winston Churchill.

The Blenheim, also known as Fourscore and Ten, was created in honor of Sir Winston's ninetieth birthday.

Strain into a chilled cocktail glass:

1 part Lillet
1 part orange juice
1 part Dubonnet
