If you assumed this drink was named after the first pub of the ‘crawl’¬†from the 2013 film World’s End, then you’d be right. At that time, bartender Alastair Walker was at The Everleigh in Melbourne, where he mixed Gin, Suze, Lime Juice, Sugar Syrup, a dash of Absinthe and it’s all topped with Soda Water to create the First Post.
