Review:

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

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Elveio Grassi's 1936 book Mille Misture, the name translates from Italian to mean Fat Iron Cocktail.

50% Vermouth Cinzano
