1/3 jigger Gin (1 1/4 oz Bombay Dry)
1/3 jigger Kina Lillet (1 oz Cocchi Americano)
2 dash Orange (1/2 oz Orange Juice)
1 dash Apricot Brandy (1/4 oz Rothman & Winter)

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Saturdays ago after I got home from closing the bar, I opened up William Boothby's 1934 World Drinks and How to Mix Them and spotted the Prohibition. The combination of ingredients reminded me of the Charlie Limbergh and the Paradise Cocktail, so it seemed like a safe bet. In the glass, the Prohibition greeted the senses with an apricot, floral, lemon, and pine aroma. Next, apricot, pear, and orange notes on the sip passed into gin, pear, and apricot flavors on the swallow.
