Shake, strain, straight up, cocktail glass
Notes
Some prefer a bit more Gin. Herbal and funky, initially sweet, then sour. Very balanced. If made with Genever, it's a Latest Word.
History
Robert Hess (Drink Boy) suggest 1/2 oz each. I've scaled this up a bit to a 3 oz cocktail.

Made with 1oz gin (Beefeater). This is a terrific drink. (5 stars)
I prefer this with the gin doubled to 1 1/2 oz and the other ingredients reduced to 1/2 oz. Drops from a 4 to a 3 with equal parts. (4 stars)
Use 1 oz gin for a slightly dryer version. Stefan loved it. (5 stars)
