How to make:

STIR all ingredients with ice and fine strain into a chilled glass.

Garnish:

Apple wedge

Comment:

Rich apricot and apple with a backbone of botanical gin. Balanced rather than dry or sweet.

This drink looks better when stirred but the original 1930 recipe is shaken and we think it tastes better for it - that is unless you add some water to increase the dilution of the stirred recipe.

Origin:

Adapted from Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book.
