Comment:

This simple but brilliantly complex aperitif-cum-digestif cocktail dates from the 1930s when it, and most other cocktails were shaken. Don't allow modern bartending convention to stir such a cocktail detract from its sublimeness.

About:

Adapted from a recipe in Elveio Grassi's 1936 book Mille Misture.
