50% Dry Gin (1 1/2 oz Bombay Dry)
40% Dry Vermouth (1 oz Noilly Prat)
10% Regular Vermouth (1/4 oz Noilly Prat Sweet)
1 Tbsp Pineapple Syrup (1/4 oz)

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
Two Wednesdays ago, I selected my 1933 reprint of Jack's Manual for an overlooked gem. There, I uncovered the Randolph as a Martini variation with pineapple syrup that reminded me of the Madame Lou and Louise. The first of those two drinks inspired my 2017 Tales of the Cocktail submission to their Martini competition with the Diamond Queen. In the glass, the Randolph shared a pine and pineapple aroma. Next, tropical and red fruit (in a plum sort of way) on the sip led to gin, pineapple, and berry flavors on the swallow.
