Old Tom Gin, Sweet vermouth, Maraschino Liqueur, Lime juice
The Emerson is a cousin to the Last Word and Aviation, or, if you prefer, a Martinez Sour. Altered from the original measurements to make a more spirituous and drier cocktail. Improved by the addition of bitter vermouth. Some suggest Dubonnet in its place.
Appears in Jacques Straub's Drinks, 1914.

3.5 if I could. Oddly, tastes a bit like a classier screwdriver. (3 stars)
on the sweet side. (4 stars)
