Rachel,

Do you have a link to the source for this drink?

Thanks,

I only have it in a book: The Gentleman's Companion vol 2 by Charles H. Baker (1939). I don't see an online version of it for a link.

Which of course, I don't have yet ;) Is the cocktail correct as written here? Can you give the Baker recipe, and I'll change this to reflect the authoritative source.

Thanks,

Zachary

Corrected bitters -- recipe calls for regular Angostura, not Angostura Orange. Added city and estimated date.
