Review:

A couple of dashes of bitters adds balance and complexity to this herbal gin-laced cherry flavoured after-dinner cocktail.

Variant:

We have Jason Clapham, a regular contributor this this site, to thank for this drier version: 2 gin, 1 cherry brandy, 2 bar spoons Green Chartreuse, with a lemon zest twist.

History:

Adapted from Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book which calls for equal parts gin, cherry brandy and Yellow Chartreuse, stipulating to "Shake well and strain into cocktail glass."
