Review:

This recipe combines elements from the world's most respected writers of vintage recipes – the base formula comes from Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book [although I've snuck in touch more whisky] with Peychaud's Bitters introduced by David Embury in his 1953 Fine Art of Mixing Drinks while the addition of absinthe is inspired by Albert Stevens Crockett's 1931 Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Days.

History:

Created by yours truly in January 2017 at the Cabinet Room, London, England.
