- Named after a California surfer who was a regular customer of Duke’s ‘Blackwatch’ Bar on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood.
- Received international acclaim by Galliano salesman, George Bednar.
The classic vodka cocktail received international attention in 1970 after being featured in the TWA in-flight menu.
