The Scorpion cocktail dates back to the 1930s when an unidentified bartender created it in Honolulu at a bar called The Hut. Trader Vic modified the recipe in the 1940s, making it a large-format drink and adding it to his menu as the Scorpion Bowl. He published several recipes, so you may find versions with brandy, cognac, or gin.
