Good episode? Give it some love!
If you don’t know our next guest by now, you haven’t really been listening. I quote him all the time, incessantly, because he is the one, the only, James Beard award-winning, for the first-ever cocktail book no less, cocktail historian extraordinaire, the Dean of Cocktails.
I’m Susan Schwartz, your drinking companion, and this is, Lush Life Podcast, every week we are inspired to live life one cocktail at a time.
If you want to know the history of the cocktail you are sipping right now, David Wondrich is the one to ask. Author of https://alushlifemanual.com/books (Imbibe), https://alushlifemanual.com/books (Punch), Esquire Drinks, co-host of drinks podcast Life Behind Bars, and so much more. He is one of my heroes and here with me today!
Our Cocktail of the week is the Improved Holland Gin Cocktail:
INGREDIENTS 
2 oz oude genever or other rich genever
1 bar spoon rich simple syrup (2:1 Demerara)
1 scant bar spoon orange curaçao
2-3 dashes aromatic bitters
1 dash absinthe

METHOD
Add all the ingredient to a mixing glass
Stir with cracked ice
Strain into chilled cocktail glass
Twist a swatch of thin-cut lemon peel over the top.
