Review:

An almond gin sour with orange flower water adding a delicate floral note. Lighter and more pleasing than the recipe might suggest.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Ted Saucier's 1951 Bottoms Up. The original calls for 1oz (30ml) orgeat syrup, which we guess was made to a light 1:1 ratio rather than the richer 2:1 used in the recipe above.

The historic 12-story Hotel Georgia opened in downtown Vancouver in 1927 but its signature cocktail, thought to have been created in the mid-1940s, doesn't appear in print until 1951 in Saucier's book. The hotel was refurbished and reopened in 2011 as the Rosewood Hotel Georgia with its original 313 rooms reduced to 155. The hotel is number 11158 in the Canadian Register of Historic Places.
