How to make:

SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.

Comment:

Almond and lemon flavoured gin. Subtle, citrusy and dry.

Origin:

This old classic was originally made to an 8:4:4 formula but I have borrowed this 8:2:1 formula from David A. Embury's 1948 'Fine Art of Mixing Drinks' (he describes the original formulation as "horrible"). The addition of water is a Difford touch.
