Named after William “Sparrow” Robinson, the sports editor for “The New York Herald” in Paris, this three-ingredient sipper is basically a lighter version of the Boulevardier, which makes sense considering the two cocktails were invented by the same person, Harry MacElhone, the proprietor of Harry’s New York Bar in Paris.

  • Garnish: lemon twist
