Remember the Maine

In his book The Gentleman’s Companion, author Charles H. Baker Jr. insists that this drink be stirred in a clockwise direction, that it may be “sea-worthy.” Whichever way you stir it, it’s delicious.

Stir with ice (in a clockwise direction if superstitious) and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
