Our Comment:

Made with an Old Tom gin with amplified botanicals and minimal sugar (some are way too sweet) produces a spiritous and, if you hit the right dilution, tasty and complex cocktail.

About:

Adapted from a recipe in Jacques Straub's 1914 book Drinks. The proportions are exactly as per his recipe but Straub calls for his Alaska to be shaken rather than stirred.
