Our Comment:

The orange bitters are key to balancing and adding depth to the equal parts aged rum and sweet vermouth. However, go easy with those dashes or bitter orange will dominate this complex cocktail.


Adapted from Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book, which calls for this cocktail to be shaken.
