Daily Tipple – the Gin Puff

gin-puff

The oldest extant reference to this nineteenth-century drink is in a Chicago newspaper from 1883, where it is mentioned by a bar-tender as being popular.
It has been a favorite drink in Elemental Mixology posset sessions for the past three or four years.
Recently, the puff, as a form of drink with a traditional family name, has been called the “lift” (by someone who clearly had no idea that they were ‘re-inventing the wheel’).
