Review:

Just enough apricot to add flavour and richness to a balanced backbone of Canadian whiskey and aromatised wine.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in in William James "Billy" Tarling's 1937 Café Royal Bar Book where this cocktail is credited to "A. F. Lawrence".
Brought to our attention by Jason E. Clapham at the St. Edward's MCR at Oxford who rebalanced the original equal parts recipe.
