B.V.D. Cocktail

B.V.D. Cocktail

1/3 Bacardi Rum (3/4 oz Flor de Cana Extra Dry)
1/3 Dry Gin (3/4 oz Boodles Gin)
1/3 French Vermouth (3/4 oz Noilly Prat)

Shake (stir, please) well and strain into cocktail glass.

Interesting dry Martini variation. The rum disappears into the vermouth and gin. Had a hard time even detecting it in the cocktail.

Lemon Twist or olive wouldn’t be inappropriate, depending on your predilection. Heck, maybe even some bitters.

Does “B.V.D.” stand for “Bradley, Voorhees & Day”, as in, underwear?

Or is it Bacardi, Vermouth, and Dry Gin?

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.
