Apricot Cocktail

Apricot Cocktail

1/4 Lemon Juice. (1/2 oz Lemon Juice)
1/4 Orange Juice. (1/2 oz Orange Juice)
1/2 Apricot Brandy. (1/2 oz Vedrenne Liqueur de Abricot)
1 Dash Dry Gin. (Beefeater’s)

Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

I was afraid this mild proto-Fuzzy Navel would be too sweet. However, the lemon balances out the sweetness of the Apricot liqueur nicely and it ends up more sweet tart. Again, as in the Apple Jack Rabbit, the aromatic zing of fresh citrus juice makes this cocktail for me.

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.

  1. Okay, yum. I had to buy a bottle of apricot brandy for some sangria, and this seems like a lovely way to use up the rest of it. Thank you. BTW, love this project of yours.
