Equal parts gin, aromatised wine and vermouth combine harmoniously in this "pleasant, clean sippin'" stirred down aperitivo.
Eponymously named after an 1891 tragedy by Oscar Wilde, this "exhumed classic" cocktail was brought to our attention by Jason E. Clapham who added the plum bitters, "a greatly needed enhancement". The original recipe, sans bitters, appeared in Hugo Ensslin's 1916 Recipes for Mixed Drinks.
