Vodka-laced, delightfully clean and cleansing with kummel's distinctive rich caraway and cumin flavour combining well with lime.
Adapted from a recipe in David Embury's 1948 The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks. Embury had a very dry palate, so we've added 7.5ml (¼oz) sugar to his recipe. Depending on your limes/tastes, you may want to add less or indeed even more.
Incidentally, Tovarishch, tovarisch or tovarish are all Russian for comrade, friend, colleague or ally. Tovaritch was a 1933 play by Jacques Deval which may have been the inspiration for this cocktail.
