Coronation Cocktail (No. 2)

Coronation Cocktail (No. 2)

1 Dash Peppermint. (Brizard Creme de Menthe)
1 Dash Peach Bitters. (Fee’s)
3 Dashes Curacao (teaspoon Brizard Orange Curacao)
2/3 Brandy (1 1/2 oz Germain-Robin Fine Alembic Brandy)

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

Well, here’s another one that doesn’t add up to 1, again lending weight to the idea that the fractions in the Savoy may be a proportion of some standard measure.

This is actually quite enjoyable. Nice feature for the peach bitters, not too sweet.

Wasn’t sure about “Peppermint”. If that meant something like Peppermint extract or a liqueur. Such a small amount, it probably doesn’t make a whole lot of difference, whether extract or liqueur.

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.
