Review:

Balanced, or even a tad on the sour side rather than sweet. The old-school Dry Martini meets the contemporary fruit-driven 'Martini'.

History:

Adapted form a recipe in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book.

WEBSTER COCKTAIL.
1/8 Lime Juice.
1/8 Apricot Brandy.
1/4 French Vermouth.
1/2 Plymouth Gin.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
A favourite cocktail at the bar of the S.S. Mauretania.

Harry Craddock, 1930


When Craddock wrote his reference to this cocktail's popularity at the bar of the Mauretania, it was one of the most famous ships due to its luxurious interior and its being the world's largest ship when it launched in 1906, but mostly due to its unrivaled speed which enabled it to hold the record for the quickest trans-Atlantic crossing for 20 years. The ship was retired five years after Craddock's book was published and its bell now hangs in the reception of the Lloyd's Register in London's Fenchurch Street where it is rung annually on Remembrance Day.
