Some may want to stir this gin-laced aperitivo but it's better enlivened by shaking, as per the original 1933 recipe. Beware, this cocktail benefits from an orange zest twist but not a lemon twist.
From a recipe first published in Jacob Abraham Grohusko's 1933 Jack's Manual and kindly adapted for us by Jason E. Clapham at the St. Edward's MCR at Oxford.
