Addington Cocktail

Addington Cocktail

1/2 French Vermouth (1 1/2 oz Boisierre Dry Vermouth)
1/2 Italian Vermouth (1 1/2 oz Noilly Prat Sweet Vermouth)

Shake well with ice and strain into a medium size glass and fill with soda water. Squeeze orange peel on top.

I seem to have skipped the Addington, in my quest to document all the “Savoy Cocktail Book” cocktails I have made. Probably because it is not really a very exciting cocktail.

If you have some of the nicer vermouths, like Carpano Antica or Vya, it would pay off to use them here. Otherwise, this is a fine low alcohol cocktail for a hot day and not much more.

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.
