Review:

The original recipe was actually 2/3rds genever to 1/3 sweet vermouth but this produces an overly dry cocktail so I've upped the proportion of vermouth to genever. Made with a quality genever oude this cocktail is almost nutty and makes for an interesting aperitif.

History:

Recipe adapted from Albert Stevens Crockett's 1935 The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book.

TURF
Dash of Angostura Bitters
One-third Italian Vermouth
Two-thirds Hollands Gin (Stir)
At times a good half–possibly two-thirds–of the crowd in the Bar were interested in racing.

A. S. Crockett, 1935
