It is said to have been created by a bartender named Harry Craddock at the Savoy Hotel in London. This cocktail is a perfect balance of sweet and sour, with a hint of citrusy freshness. It is made with just three ingredients - triple sec, gin, and a lime wedge. The triple sec adds a touch of sweetness and orange flavor, while the gin provides a strong and aromatic base. The lime wedge adds a tart and tangy element, balancing out the sweetness of the triple sec. The unique combination of these ingredients creates a smooth and refreshing cocktail with a light and crisp finish. Its name is inspired by the legendary ghostly ship that was doomed to sail the seas forever, giving the cocktail an air of mystery and adventure.
