Bich’s Special Cocktail
1 Dash Angostura Bitters.
1/3 Kina Lillet. (3/4 oz Lillet Blanc)
2/3 Dry Gin. (1 1/2 oz Beefeater’s Gin)
Shake (Stir, please) well and strain into cocktail glass. Squeeze orange peel on top.
This one was nice. Using Beefeater’s, it really showcases the flavor of Lillet more than any other cocktail I’ve tried. It is a surprisingly complex cocktail for such simple ingredients.
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.
