Made with equal parts Irish and Scotch whiskey, Cameron’s Kick origin is attributed to Harry MacElhone’s 1922 book, Harry’s ABC of Making Cocktails. Cocktail historian David Wondrich is generally credited for the drink’s revival in the mid-2000s. He first published the recipe in his 2005 book, Killer Cocktails (Harper Collins), which eventually landed it on cocktail menus across New York City.

- ½ oz Lemon juice
