Review:

You'll need to appreciate kummel to enjoy this long-lost classic. However, if you do, the only question is, do you like this cocktail with more or less Scotch whisky?

History:

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

ALICE MINE COCKTAIL.
½ Italian Vermouth.
½ Russian Kummel.
2 Dashes Scotch Whisky.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

Harry Craddock, The Savoy Cocktail Book, 1930

In his 1977 Jones' Complete Barguide, Stanley M. Jones lists the Alice Mine with bourbon whiskey with the Scotch whisky version listed as simply "Alice".
