Simple but very tasty, equal parts old tom gin and sweet vermouth with aromatic bitters. Winter's original 1884 recipe calls for "Peruvian bitters" - I found 3 dashes of Peruvian Cortesano Amargo Bitters Aromatic work well if you have them, alternatively use a dash less of Angostura or simular aromatic bitters.
