The Cooperstown Cocktail

Yesterday when having a look a the 1917 bar book " The Ideal Bartender" by Tom Bullock, i found a recipe that sounded interesting to my taste, "The Cooperstown Cocktail", a fresh libation with a mixture of Old Tom Gin, Vermouth and fresh mint, a perfect concoction to have before a nice meal, cause of its minty and dry flavour.
The Cooperstown Cocktail from Old Waldorf Bar Days (1931), reports that the drink was created at the hotel's Big Brass Rail bar for some money men from Cooperstown, NY. In The Savoy Cocktail Book (1930) the Cooperstown consists of equal parts dry vermouth, sweet vermouth and gin.
