Review:

Almond and lemon flavoured gin. Subtle, citrusy and (despite generous orgeat) dry.

History:

This old classic was originally made to an 8:4:4 formula, but in his 1948 The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks David A. Embury's opts for an 8:2:1 formula, describing the original formulation as "horrible". I've ended up with a 24:6:5 formula in the quest for balance and deliciousness. Not nearly as simple but tastier!
