Review:

Citrusy, bourbon-laced and gently bittersweet with fresh zippy rich orange.

History:

First published in William James "Billy" Tarling's 1937 Café Royal Bar Book where the invention of this cocktail is credited to "A. L. Jones." The Sunray was brought to our attention by Jason E. Clapham of St. Edward's MCR at Oxford, England who recommends making it with Cocchi Americano in place of the Kina Lillet used in the 1937 recipe.
