We have Jason Clapham, a regular contributor this this site, to thank for this drier version: 2 gin, 1 cherry brandy, 2 bar spoons Green Chartreuse, with a lemon zest twist.
Adapted from Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book which calls for equal parts gin, cherry brandy and Yellow Chartreuse, stipulating to "Shake well and strain into cocktail glass."
