Appetiser Cocktail

Appetiser Cocktail

1/2 Gin. (1 1/2 oz Beefeater Gin)
1/2 Dubonnet. (1 1/2 oz Dubonnet Rouge)
The Juice of 1/2 Orange.

Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

This was OK; but, I liked it better with a dash or two of Angostura bitters, (which, in the world of the Savoy, probably makes it a different drink). It’s not as “dangerously drinkable” as some modern mixed drinks; but it does seem like one of those drinks that make it seem like you’re not really having something with hard liquor in it. Then all of a sudden you’ve swilled three in quick succession and you’re pretty drunk. At least you’re getting your Vitamin C!

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.
