Hundred Per Cent Cocktail

Hundred Per Cent
1/6 Orange Juice. (1/2 of 3/4 oz Orange Juice)
1/6 Lemon Juice. (1/2 of 3/4 oz Lemon Juice)
2/3 Swedish Punch. (1 1/2 oz Homemade Arrack Punch)
2 Dashes Grenadine. (1/2 teaspoon Fee’s American Beauty Grenadine)

Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

I was kind of afraid this would be way too sweet. Fortunately, my oranges are pretty tart, so this sort of works out OK. Pretty intense, though. Reminds me of the sort of balance often struck in modern cocktails, where the sweetness and tartness are both pushed out.

Nice Arrack flavor, though, so you won’t be mistaking it for a Cosmo, despite the similar color.

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.
