In 1915 Harry MacElhone himself mixed this gem up and named it after the French artillery cannon of the same name. Also known to be drunk by British soldiers serving in France, the drink was often drunk with calvados. First published in the Savoy cocktail book in 1930. Author Harry Craddock said of the elixir “it hits with remarkable precision!”
