As much a storyteller as he was a cocktail aficionado, Charles H. Baker recounts the tale of the impromptu marriage to his third wife at a party in Hong Kong before offering up the recipe for this classic cocktail.
1 oz. gin
3/4 oz. orange Curacao
3/4 oz. cherry-flavored brandy
1/4 oz. lime cordial
Tools: shaker, strainer
Combine all ingredients with ice in a shaker, shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
