2/5 jigger Gin (1 1/2 oz Beefeater)
2/5 jigger Orange Juice (1 oz)
1 spoon Pineapple Syrup (1/2 oz)
1/2 Egg White (1 Egg White)

Shake once without ice and once with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.

After the Westervelt, I turned to William Boothby's 1934 edition of World Drinks And How To Mix Them and spied the Palace. With gin, orange, and pineapple notes shaken with egg white, the Palace reminded me of the Hawaii Cocktail that I enjoyed at Green Street. Here, the nutmeg garnish played a large role in the drink's aroma. Next, the sip offered a smooth orange and pineapple flavor, and some of this fruitiness carried over into the swallow and mingled with the gin.
