Review:

Craddock calls for this drink to be shaken, but in this instance, stirring seems more in order. I've also mixed to our preferred 5:1 stirred Dry Martini ratio.

History:

Adapted from Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book:
"ELK COCKTAIL.
½ Prunelle Brandy.
2 Dashes French Vermouth.
½ Dry Gin.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
"
