This gin and cognac orange-based citrusy cocktail is deliberately, and indeed originally, formulated to be a tad on the sour side, but is balanced by a luxuriant sugar-crusted rim.
Created by Arthur Tarling, head bartender at London's Café Royal, this recipe was first published in 1937 by his younger brother, Billy Tarling, in his Café Royal Cocktail Book.
