Allies, a D-Day cocktail

Here’s a cocktail effort to honor the Allis of World War II. Odd how Prohibition and world wars contribute so much to naming cocktails. A first reading of the ingredients would seem to place the finished mix in a stemmed cocktail glass, instead of an old-fashioned glass, but the deeper glass allows serving it over the rocks.

Stir all the ingredients in an ice-filled mixing glass until well chilled. Strain into an old-fashioned glass. Garnish with an lemon twist.
