Review:

Aquamarine blue, this delicately fruity gin-based cocktail is dried by a splash of vermouth and soured by lemon juice.

History:

In William James "Billy" Tarling's 1937 Café Royal Cocktail Book (Coronation Edition), the invention of this cocktail is credited to J. B. O'Brien. Made to the proportions specified in Tarling's book, the above recipe would only have 5ml (1/6oz) sugar syrup.
