Leave It To Me Cocktail (No. 1)
1 Dash Lemon Juice. (1/3 tsp. Lemon Juice)
1/4 Apricot Brandy. (1/2 oz Rothman & Winter Orchard Apricot)
1/4 French Vermouth (1/2 oz Dolin French Vermouth)
1 Dash Grenadine. (1/3 tsp. Fee’s American Beauty)
1/2 Plymouth Gin. (1 oz Plymouth Gin)
Shake (stir, please) well and strain into cocktail glass.
Well, the cocktail is a lovely light rose in hue.
And the flavor is somewhat reminiscent of childhood flavors. Unfortunately, I’d say the flavors it reminds me of are some sort of slightly medicinal eccentric English candy.
I dunno, maybe if you’re Heston Blumenthal, and nostalgia food is your thing, this might be just the ticket. Doesn’t, however, do much for me.
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.
