A boozy brandy influenced wet and sweet Martini with a hint of orange. The zesty orange notes help the cleansing attributes of this spirit-forward cocktail, so making it equally suited to the pre-dinner and after-dinner occasions.
First published in A. S. Crockett's 1934 The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book.
"Two dashes Orange Bitters
One-third Tom Gin
One-third Italian Vermouth
Two dashes of Curacao on top"
The name may be a reference to the '&' in Martini & Rossi, likely the brand of vermouth originally used.
