Original instructions dictated that it be shaken for a good 12 minutes, requiring a bit of a bartender relay. The drink lives on today in bars around the world minus the marathon shaking time. 1 1 2 oz. gin 1 Tbsp. simple syrup 1 1 1 2 oz. fresh lemon juice 1 2 oz. fresh lime juice 1 fresh egg white pasteurized if you like 1 oz. heavy cream 3 drops orange flower water 1 oz. club soda, chilled Tools shaker, strainer Glass highball Combine first seven ingredients in a shak
