Babbie’s Special Cocktail
1 Dash Gin. (1/2 teaspoon Beefeater’s Gin)
1/3 Sweet Cream. (3/4 oz Cream)
2/3 Apricot Brandy. (1 1/2 oz Vedrenne Liqueur de Abricot)
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
I really hope Babbie was special for some other reason than her taste in cocktails. Beautiful? Rich?
I found the drink much improved with a dash of peach bitters and a garnish of freshly ground nutmeg. Still, not something I would ever make again.
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.
