Mississippi #1 with Bitters

It is a rare eclectic duck to have a cocktail that uses dashes of juice, but some of the oldest classics out of the much-loved Savoy Cocktail Book like the Presto or Harrovian use just a bit of acid to get gin-heavy drinks to pop. The Mississippi #1 is a mid-1900s riff of the Savoy's Mississippi Mule which favors lemon for the orange. Here we pour a modern Mississippi, dried out with a bit of Angostura.
