Belmont Cocktail

Belmont Cocktail

1/3 Grenadine. (3/4 oz Homemade Grenadine)
2/3 Dry Gin. (1 1/2 oz Beefeater’s Gin)
1 Teaspoonful Fresh Cream.

Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

I can’t say I had much hope for this one. Gin, grenadine, and cream. I think, however, I am again saved by homemade grenadine. I have no doubt I probably wouldn’t have enjoyed this cocktail made with Rose’s or Fee’s Grenadine. However, with my moderately sweet and pretty darn flavorful home made version of grenadine, it’s not bad at all. In fact, it’s another in the relatively small club of Savoy cocktails with dairy that I actually managed to finish.

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.
