Review:

Joe Gilmore made this with lime juice but it's much better with lemon juice. Indeed I'm guilty of also tweaking the proportions of the other ingredients to make this rendition of the Churchill to confirm more to my tastes. Hopefully, Joe would have approved.

History:

Named after the legendary Prime Minister, this cocktail was created by Joe Gilmore during his tenure bartending (1940 to 1976) at The Savoy Hotel's American Bar, the oldest surviving cocktail bar in London.
