This combination first appeared in 1949, and is ascribed to the Belgian barman Gustave Tops, who created it at the Hotel Metropole in Brussels in honor of Perle Mesta, then U.S. ambassador to Luxembourg.Fact|date=November 2007 The cocktail owes its name to the dark period of the Cold War with the Soviet UnionFact|date=November 2007.
