"There was a man called Erskine Gwynne, who was editor of an expat magazine published in Paris called ""Boulevardier"" published between 1927 and 1932. As everyone else he drank. Harry McElhone (Famous from Harry's New York Bar in Paris) lists the cocktail in his book and gives credit for the invention to Gwynne. Is it a Manhattan with Campari, or a Negroni with whisky? Yes. The original recipe, and the IBA standard both serve it up in a chilled coupette, but a very common variation is to serve it on the rocks. It makes for a longer more fruity experience. Try both."
