The Tuxedo is an IBA Official Cocktail composed of gin, dry Vermouth, orange bitters, maraschino and Absinthe.[1]

Related to the martini, the Tuxedo has had many variations since its inception in the 1880s.[2] The cocktail is named after the Tuxedo Club outside Jersey City where it was first mixed. Tuxedo Park, the planned community where the club was built, is itself a derivation of the Lenape word tucseto. The form of menswear by the same name originated at the same country club around the same time. [3]
