Here’s the recipe for The Gentleman Caller from Melbourne’s Above Board

Melbourne bar, Above Board.

When we’re looking for a classically-structured drink which we know isn’t going to disappoint, more often than not we’ll give Above Board’s Hayden Lambert a call. His small Collingwood bar is dedicated to getting the simple things done right: each drink uses but a few ingredients, but they’re put together in such a way as to give you something greater than the sum of its parts.
