Comment:

Mouth-puckeringly dry this is a great aperitivo with quinine, fino sherry, gin botanicals and citrus all singing harmoniously.

About:

Named after Lewis Carroll's Jabberwoky poem, this recipe is adapted from Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book:
"2 Dashes Orange Bitters.
1/3 Dry Gin.
1/3 Dry Sherry.
1/3 Caperitif.
Stir well and strain into cocktail glass. Squeeze lemon peel on top."

The following notation in red accompanies the above recipe in the book. "This will made you gyre and gimble in the wabe until brillig all right, all right." Proving that Harry Craddock was a Lewis Carroll fan.
