Cold Glass has the best writeup of this hidden gem:
The lemon is more than a garnish in this cocktail. Garnishes weren’t a strong point for Craddock, and he didn’t list one for the Atty, but that lemon twist enhances the nose and the flavors remarkably. I consider it mandatory.
The vermouth tempers the other flavors, and helps them make sense together. Craddock’s original gin-to-vermouth ratio is 3:1; you may want to try 2:1. Noilly Prat’s herbal French Dry is a good choice here. Increased vermouth brings the violette flavor to the fore; before the Atty, it had never occurred to me that you can balance two strong flavors (absinthe and violette) by adjusting a third bridging ingredient.
