This amazing cocktail was winner of ICC 1930 (London).
Nine year later Walter Madigan prepare it without calvados and
won ICC 1939.
I think now it is pure classics, symbol of magnificence of cocktail…
It has complicated taste with undertones of fruits (rape apples, dried fruits, grape,
apricots) and fabulous appearance with little summer sun in your glass.
Interesting relative post from Paul Clarke.
25 ml gin
25 ml apricot brandy
