scoff·law (skflô, skôf-) n.
One who habitually violates the law or fails to answer court summonses.

While the term was originally coined to describe those who, despite the law, could not give up their precious drinks and the company that accompanied them, it was soon turned into the name of an outstanding cocktail created at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris. Harry was an American bartender who, during prohibition, took control of his career and moved across the pond to Europe, where he eventually started his own bar. Many great cocktails were created in Europe during prohibition, but perhaps none were so ironically named as this one. Cheers!
