Almond and lemon flavoured gin. Subtle, citrus and, despite generous orgeat, fairly dry.
With amaretto: 60ml (2oz) gin, 15 (½oz) lemon juice, 7.5 (¼oz) amaretto liqueur, 5 (1 spoon) orgeat syrup, and 1 dash aromatic bitters.
This old classic was originally made to a 4:2:2 formula, but in his 1948 The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, David Embury opts for an 8:2:1 formula, describing the original formulation as "horrible". I've ended up with a 12:3:2 formula in the quest for balance and deliciousness.
ARMY & NAVY.David A. Embury, 1948
1 part Lemon Juice
1 part Orgeat
2 parts Gin
1 have given the original recipe which, to my mind, is horrible. If made to my 1:2:8 formula, it is merely the Gin Sour with orgeat used in place of sugar syrup.
