A cocktail from the 1920s named after some sketchy surgical practices. Happily, there's nothing sketchy about the cocktail itself. Gin and fresh orange juice are enhanced with a splash of grenadine and absinthe to make a juicy, easy to drink but interesting cocktail.
Even though they're small amounts, using good grenadine (make your own with equal parts pomegranate juice and sugar with a dash of pomegranate molasses) and absinthe make a difference here. —fiveandspice
