Review:

Reminiscent of a Martini but sans vermouth, sweetened with dash of sugar and balanced by heavy use of bitters.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in George J. Kappeler's 1895 book, Modern American Drinks.

Turf Cocktail.
One dash Angostura bitters, three dashes orange bitters, one jigger Tom gin in a mixing-glass half-fill fine ice. Mix, strain into cocktail-glass; add a piece twisted lemon peel.

George J. Kappeler, 1895
