How to make it:

Pour your ingredients over ice and stir well. Serve with a lime garnish. Some versions of the cocktail recommend a squeeze of lemon to give it that extra bitterness, but I found this is just enough. It really is quite a sharp cocktail, and not one for anyone with a sweet tooth. I can only ever manage one!
