Review:

Apricot fortified by gin and apple brandy. Craddock's 1930 recipe calls for this cocktail to be shaken rather than stirred, indeed it's a cocktail that benefits from a little dilution, hence the addition of water.

History:

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