For a nightcap two Friday nights ago, I reached for my 1948 edition of the 1947 Trader Vic's Bartender's Guide. There, I paused on the Gradeal that appeared like a Culross with the Lillet swapped for gin. The pairing of gin and rum as split base spirits seemed a little unusual, but they were compatible in the Sirius, Small Dinger, and other drinks.
