This trendy little jewel is actually a relic of the Roaring 20s. It languished in obscurity until Seattle bartender Murray Stenson re-discovered it in the mid-00s, and these days it’s a rare cocktail menu that doesn’t include it.
The hype is entirely justified; the drink is piquant and complex, the ratio is easy to remember, and it makes healthy use of a couple of wonderful liqueurs too often relegated to the back of the cabinet.
- ¾ part Gin
- ¾ part Green herbal liqueur
- ¾ part Maraschino
- ¾ part Lime juice
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass – the prettier the glass, the better it tastes. Really!
