- 2 ounces Old Tom gin (Ransom is popular)
- 1/4 ounce simple syrup or 1 sugar cube with a splash of water (muddled)
- 2 dashes orange bitters
- 1 lemon peel
- In a mixing glass or Boston shaker, combine simple syrup, bitters, and gin. Fill mixing glass halfway with ice, then stir vigorously about a dozen times.
