King Cole Cocktail
1 Glass Rye or Canadian Club Whisky. (2 oz Bonded Rittenhouse Rye Whiskey)
2 Dashes Syrup. (1/2 teaspoon Depaz Cane Syrup)
1 Dash Fernet Branca.
1 Lump of Ice.
Stir well and decorate with slices of orange and pineapple.
Oh happy day, I get to make an Old-Fashioned!
And not only that, but one with fruit and Fernet. Oh how very California! Or is that how very New York?
I took the opportunity to, “decorate with berries, in season,” as Harry Johnson or Jerry Thomas would say.
Mmmm… Booze soaked fruit! I dare you to call that “garbage”.
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.
