About:

This old classic was originally made to an 8:4:4 formula, but in his 1948 The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks David A. Embury's opts for an 8:2:1 formula, describing the original formulation as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". We've gone a step further in the quest for balance and deliciousness with a 12:3:2 formula.
