Review:

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.

History:

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.
