Well, Roy has a personality beyond its stature, so much so that Roy takes dilution well, hence my addition of an optional splash of chilled water.
Adapted from a recipe in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book. The Savoy recipe calls for Hercules, a sadly long since defunct product that vintage newspaper advertisements for the brand describe as being a "Maté-Wine Apéritif" with an "alcohol strength over 25°." Hence, I've used another wine-based aperitif.
