1/2 Brandy (1 1/2 oz Camus VS Cognac)
1/4 Italian Vermouth (3/4 oz Cocchi Sweet Vermouth)
1/4 French Vermouth (3/4 oz Noilly Prat Dry)
3 dash Curaçao (1/4 oz Pierre Ferrand)
1 dash Absinthe (1/2 bsp Kübler)

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass; I added an orange twist.
Two Sundays ago, I selected the 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book to stick with the weekend's 1930s drink theme. There, I opted for the Whip which was reminiscent of the Metropole, Sacre Bleu, and Eye Opener. Once prepared, the Whip met the nose with a Cognac aroma plus orange notes from the curaçao and twist garnish. Next, a grape-driven sip led into a Cognac, herbal, and orange swallow with a lightly anise finish.
