Review:

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

This drink looks better when stirred but the Harry Craddock's original 1930 recipe is shaken and the extra dilution this brings helps mellow this boozy classic. Hence, we've added a splash of water to increase the dilution of the stirred recipe. Although an act of heresy, a splash of processed and packed clear "apple juice" also works wonders in place of added chilled water.

History:

Adapted from Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book which stipulates "Shake well and strain into cocktail glass".
