The Monkey Gland is a cocktail of gin, orange juice, grenadine and absinthe named after a surgical technique of grafting monkey testicle tissue into humans.[1] The practice was started by Dr Serge Voronoff, and was intended to produce longevity.

The Monkey Gland was created in the 1920s by Harry MacElhone, owner of Harry's New York Bar in Paris, France.[2]

The Monkey Gland is sometimes known as the McCormick[citation needed].

Rachel Maddow prepared this drink during her guest appearance on the Jimmy Fallon Show on March 25, 2011.
