The CHIN UP is a classic cocktail from the pre-Prohibition era. The drink was invented by a bartender named "Harry" who worked at the Hoffman House in New York City. In 1894, he created this drink for a patron who was too nervous to speak but wanted to have "something with a kick to it." In a mixing glass, smash thick cucumber slices. Stir in the other ingredients as well as the ice. Fill a chilled cocktail glass halfway with the liquid. Serve with a thin cucumber slice as a garnish. Then, serve in a cocktail glass.
