1 34 oz Old Tom Gin, Hayman's
34 oz Sweet vermouth, Carpano Punt e Mes
12 oz Lime juice
14 oz Maraschino Liqueur, Luxardo
The Emerson is a cousin to the Last Word and Aviation, or, if you prefer, a Martinez Sour. Altered from the original measurements to make a more spirituous and drier cocktail. Improved by the addition of bitter vermouth. Some suggest Dubonnet in its place.
Appears in Jacques Straub's Drinks, 1914.

  • on the sweet side. — ☆☆☆☆
  • 3.5 if I could. Oddly, tastes a bit like a classier screwdriver. — ☆☆☆
  • Greenhook Old Tom Gin, Atsby Armadillo Cake Vermouth. Very tasty but lacking in depth, otherwise would have been a 5. — ☆☆☆☆
