twentieth century

1 1/2 oz gin
3/4 oz lemon juice
3/4 oz Lillet
1/2 oz creme de cacao (or?)
Bittermen's mole bitters

recipe: Cocktail Chronicles. See postnote below for Green Street's recipe.

I asked for this drink at Green Street because it seems like everyone I know who wanted to try the mole bitters ended up getting this drink from Misty and lurved it... When it arrived I remembered why I hadn't yet asked for it: lemon juice. Ah well. For what it was, it was quite lovely and balanced and light. But that damn lemon juice does not play well with my teeth. Sigh. Such an old lady!

Postnote: Green Street's recipe is 1 1/2 oz gin, 1/2 oz creme de cacao, 1/2 oz Lillet blanc, 1/2 oz lemon, lemon twist.
