Our Comment:

As Jason Clapham (the Difford's Guide reader who brought this citrusy sweet 'n' sour cocktail to our attention in February 2020) says, it's "essentially a cherry Sidecar." Those with sweeter palates may want to add a splash of sugar syrup.

About:

Adapted from a recipe in W. J. Tarling's 1937 Café Royal Cocktail Book where the invention of this cocktail is credited to "C. A. Gadina".
