Review:

A Gin Sour sweetened with orange liqueur. Harry Craddock's original 1930 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 cocktail, hence I've reduced the citrus and added a touch of sugar.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book.

FINE AND DANDY COCKTAIL.
¼ Lemon Juice.
¼ Cointreau.
½ Plymouth Gin.
1 Dash Angostura Bitters.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

Harry Craddock, The Savoy Cocktail Book, 1930
