A dry, orangey, herbal, gin-laced aperitivo, closely related to the better known Bronx.
Adapted from a recipe first published in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book and repeated in William James "Billy" Tarling's 1937 Café Royal Bar Book.
Although one of the earliest cocktails on our database (the third), the Abbey was brought to our attention for a long overdue update by Jason E. Clapham of St. Edward's MCR at Oxford, England who recommends making it with Cocchi Americano as a substitute for the now sadly discontinued Kina Lillet used in the 1930 recipe.
