Millionaire Cocktail

This rendition of the classic features a fruity medley of rum, apricot, and sloe gin.

Several cocktails bearing the Millionaire moniker have been in circulation since 1914. This version is adapted from a 1917 recipe (following the recommendations of Ted Haigh in his 2004 book, Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails), adjusting the proportions to better suit contemporary palates.


  • 1 1⁄2 oz. Jamaican rum (such as Smith & Cross)
  • 3⁄4 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 3⁄4 oz. apricot liqueur
  • 3⁄4 oz. sloe gin
  • Tools:shaker, strainer
  • Glass:cocktail
  • Garnish:lime wheel


Shake all of the ingredients with ice, then strain into a chilled glass and garnish.
