Bloodhound Cocktail

Since I mentioned the Bloodhound cocktail in the previous post, figured I should put up that recipe.

Blood-Hound Cocktail

1/4 French Vermouth. (3/4 oz Dry Vermouth)
1/4 Italian Vermouth. (3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth)
1/2 Dry Gin. (1 1/2 oz)
2 or 3 Crushed Strawberries.

Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

This is a great cocktail when strawberries are in season.

Some suggest raspberries instead of strawberries; but, strawberries and gin are a great combo. Use a milder gin like Beefeater or Bombay, and it’s a good cocktail to win vodka drinkers over to gin.

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
