This drink was at its most fashionable in London in the 1920s, and is regarded as an acquired taste by many[who?].
A lesser-known variation with raspberries instead of strawberries is called a Halsdon. The raspberries are liquidised with sufficient icing sugar to mellow their sourness, and thus forms a sort of raspberry coulis. An equal volume of the coulis is added to the shaken mix of dry, sweet (blanc) vermouth and plymouth gin. A more striking variation comprises vodka, tomato juice, and sherry.
