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.
