|1||Key lime (juice and peel)|
|4||ds||Bitters, Angostura (large dashes)|
Muddle lime peel in lime juice, fill a Collins with crushed ice, add Angostura, lime juice/peel, and Genever, stir. Or, in Baker-ese: "Take a tall thin water tumbler and fill it with finely cracked ice. Lace this broken debris with 4 good purple splashes of Angostura, add the juice and crushed peel of 1 green lime, and fill glass almost full with Holland gin."
Baker again: "No sugar, no fancying. It’s strong, it’s bitter – but so is English ale strong and bitter, in many cases. We don’t add sugar to ale, and we don’t need sugar in a Death in the Gulf Stream – or at least not more than 1 tsp. Its tartness and its bitterness are its chief charm. It is reviving and refreshing; cools the blood and inspires renewed interest in food, companions and life."
