Take 2 glasses of sweet Cider (2 oz Martinelli’s Cider), 1 Glass Gin (1 oz. Beefeater’s), 1 Glass of Brandy (1 oz Korbel VSOP Brandy) and 2 glasses of Calvados (2 oz Laird’s Bonded Apple Jack). Shake and serve. (Garnish with thin horizontal slices of tart, green apple.)
Note: This is the cocktail doctors hate to recommend.
The above volume recommendations are for two cocktails. Be nice to go with a nice tart cider. Something with a little more spine than the Martinelli’s. If you have to use a mild apple juice style cider, a dash of lemon wouldn’t hurt. In any case, a tasty cocktail, and the apple slice was a nice addition which added a tasty booze soaked treat to the end of the cocktail.
Caution: Over enthusiastic consumption of this potent pomme potation may result in tawdry, if not downright original, sin.
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.
