A gin based drink that's soured with lemon and sweetened with orange liqueur.
Adapted from a recipe in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book. Harry's recipe calls for 1 part lemon, 1 part triple sec and 2 parts gin. Depending on your lemons, this tends to produce an overly sour drink hence we've reduced the citrus and added a touch of sugar.
