  • Baker says this is one of the half-dozen chief cocktails in the world, but it is almost unknown, and does not seem to be as great as he says in anyone else's experience. It is very good, but doesn't seem great. — ☆☆☆☆

SPEC#2: nolet's silver,

SPEC#2: nolet's silver, edmond briotett creme de peche (instead of apricot), lemon (both lemon and lime are listed as options in the original recipe), whites and bitter truth peach bitters. A dry cocktail but definitely an improvement over the original (and more of a combo of no.1 & 2). ☆☆☆☆
