Reportedly created by bartender Robert Vermiere in 1922, this cocktail’s namesake may be a famous 1920’s circus midget. I’m not really sure why one would name a drink after a midget, but hats off to him for creating this drink as it is wonderful. A simple blend of apple brandy, rum based liqueur, and grapefruit, this drink has both me and my wife longing for the summer. I chose a ruby grapefruit for this drink as it is lighter and sparkles more than white grapefruit. Cheers!
