Between The Sheets Rum Cognac Orange Liqueur Lemon Juice Shaken Cockatil

The true origin of the Between the Sheets cocktail is debated. It is usually credited to Harry MacElhone of Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, France, in the 1930s as a derivative of his popular Sidecar. However, other theories contend that it was created earlier in the 1920s at The Berkley, or in France as an apéritif in brothels for prostitutes.

A variation of Between the Sheets that uses gin instead of rum and cognac is called the “Maiden’s Prayer.”
