Review:

I've reduced the proportions of this cocktail by one-third as I believe, where such richly flavoured spirituous cocktails are concerned, less is more.

Variant:

Rose (English) - gin, apricot brandy, dry vermouth, lemon juice, and grenadine.
Rose (by Johnny Milta) - dry vermouth, kirschwasser, and groseille syrup.
Rose (by Albert of the Chatham Bar) - dry vermouth, kirschwasser, cherry brandy, and groseille syrup.
Rose No. 3 - dry vermouth, kirschwasser, and groseille syrup.

History:

Adapted from a recipe by Jason E. Clapham at the St. Edward's MCR at Oxford, in turn, an adaption of a recipe in William "Cocktail Bill" Boothby's 1930 Swallows : World's Drinks And How To Mix Them.
