Read about cocktail measures and measuring.
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.
Recipe adapted from Albert Stevens Crockett's 1935 The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book.

At times a good half–possibly two-thirds–of the crowd in the Bar were interested in racing.
