Replete with lawn tennis and golf, the Tuxedo Club was established in Tuxedo Park, New York, a little over an hour outside of New York City. Well-heeled club members no doubt took the train in and out of Grand Central, perhaps even fortifying themselves with a drink at the nearby Waldorf Astoria. Conveniently, it’s there that the Tuxedo was, in fact created. This recipe comes from Daly’s Bartenders Encyclopedia (1903), and originally called for maple gin, which has been updated to maple syrup here.
