Alexander’s Sister Cocktail
1/3 Dry Gin (1 oz Beefeater’s Gin)
1/3 Creme de Menthe (1 oz Brizard Creme de Menthe)
1/3 Sweet Cream (1 oz Cream)
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
Ladies are advised to avoid this cocktail as often as possible.
Or anyone else for that matter. My aversion to dairy and overly sweet cocktails makes this slightly stiffer cousin of the Grasshopper one of my least favorite of cocktails from the “Savoy Cocktail Book.”
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.
