Review:

Like some journalists I've met, this cocktail is bitter and sour, so a sweetener is called for (– an optional splash of sugar syrup).

History:

Adapted from the following recipe in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book.

JOURNALIST COCKTAIL.
2 dashes Lemon Juice.
2 dashes Curaçao.
1 dash Angostura Bitters.
1/6 French Vermouth.
1/6 Italian Vermouth.
2/3 Gordon's Dry Gin.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

Harry Craddock, 1930
