Review:

This light scarlet cocktail combines gin, apricot and lemon juice. The aromatic bitters and lemon zest twist are essential to this cocktail's balance.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Stanley M. Jones' 1977 Jones' Complete Barguide.

In his 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book, Harry Craddock also lists an "Apricot Cocktail" but this earlier version includes orange juice and omits grenadine.
