Two Thursdays ago, I delved back into my 1933 reprint of Jack's Manual and spotted the Lawrence which came across like a gin-sloe gin Perfect Martini of sorts. Once prepared, the Lawrence proffered a pine, anise, and berry bouquet to the nose. Next, tart berry and grape notes on the sip traversed into gin and berry flavors on the swallow.
