In celebration of my new racing green Mini Cooper! My first new car in nine years!
From 100 Cocktails: How to Mix Them by ‘Bernard’ –
1/4 gill of brandy
1/8 gill of dry gin
The juice of 1/4 lemon
1/2 shakerful of broken ice
Half fill the shaker with broken ice and squeeze in the juice of 1/4 lemon. Then add the brandy and the dry gin. Shake well and pass through a strainer into a cocktail glass.
This is a great favourite among the French and is fairly strong, apparently.
