Review:

Richly aromatic and somewhat reminiscent of a Martinez.

Variant:

As with the Martinez, I believe the Bridal is better with either Old Tom gin or genever, or a combo of these genever spirits. This led me to create the Bridal Suite.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Albert Stevens Crockett's 1931 Old Waldorf Bar Days. This rejuvenated classic brought to my attention by Jason E. Clapham at the St. Edward's MCR at Oxford. Jason's recipe is as above but with 60ml (2oz) Plymouth Gin.
