1⁄2 oz Rum, Banks 7
1⁄2 oz Virgin Islands Rum, Cruzan Blackstrap
3⁄4 oz Lemon cordial (lemon sherbet)

As with many of McGarry's adapted drinks, with their elaborations and embellishments, "inspired by" is perhaps more accurate than "adapted from." But this one gets its inpsiration from William Terrrington's 1869 Cooling Cups and Dainty Drinks.
