A short, sharp and very satisfying bracer to prequal a good meal, or indeed chase such a meal.
This cocktail first appears in Harry Johnson's 1900 Bartenders' Manual. It also features in Harry Craddock's 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book where Bokers bitters is replaced with orange bitters. It's worth noting that Harry Johnson's recipe states "3 or 4 dashes of bitters (Boker's genuine only)."
