Review:

Best enjoyed as an alternative to a dry martini and best as a nightcap. The classic recipe is equal parts tequila, curaçao and dry vermouth, but I like to add a touch more mellowing vermouth and then kick it back up again with the merest splash of smoky mezcal. This adaption was influenced by Jason E. Clapham, who recommended this cocktail to us with the addition of 5ml / 1 spoon of Wray & Nephew overproof rum to give "a bump" to original equal parts recipe.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in W. J. Tarling's 1937 Café Royal Cocktail Book.
