Bentley Cocktail

Bentley Cocktail

1/2 Calvados, or Apple Brandy. (1 1/2 oz Germain-Robin Apple Brandy)
1/2 Dubonnet. (1 1/2 oz Dubonnet Rouge)

Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

A fine, if unremarkable, cocktail. Found it a bit more interesting with the addition of orange peel and a dash of orange bitters.

Some drinky types have mentioned that the Dubonnet sold in the US is manufactured in Kentucky by Heaven Hill and may have a less interesting character than the Dubonnet manufactured in France. Not having had the opportunity to try the imported stuff I cannot confirm or deny this opinion.

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.
