The original recipe from 1937 called for Kina Lillet, which is no longer available—Lillet Blanc makes a good substitute in this Art Deco cocktail.

• 1.5 oz gin

• 0.75 oz Lillet Blanc

• 0.5 oz light crème de cacao

• 0.5 oz fresh lemon juice

• Garnish: Lemon twist

Combine gin, Lillet Blanc, crème de cacao and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Cover and shake until chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with lemon twist. Serves 1.
