How to make:
SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.
Lemon zest twist
Almond and lemon flavoured gin. Subtle, citrusy and dry.
This old classic was originally made to an 8:4:4 formula but I have borrowed this 8:2:1 formula from David A. Embury's 1948 'Fine Art of Mixing Drinks' (he describes the original formulation as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.
