A mixing-glass half-full fine ice, two dashes Angostura bitters, one-half a pony yellow chartreuse, one-half a pony benedictine, one pony of apple brandy; shake well, strain into a fancy cocktail-glass, and serve.
Our recipe follows the exact formula of the original with 1 pony = 25ml (if using oz you may find 1 pony = 30ml easier).
