Charlie Lindbergh Cocktail
2 Dashes Orange Juice. (2/3 tsp Orange Juice)
2 Dashes Pricota. (2/3 tsp Rothman & Winter Orchard Apricot liqueur)
1/2 Kina Lillet. (1 oz Cocchi Americano)
1/2 Plymouth Gin. (1 oz Plymouth Gin)
Shake (stir?) well and serve in cocktail glass. Squeeze lemon peel on top.
I can only assume this is named after Charles Lindbergh, the aviator who flew the first successful non-stop flight between New York and Paris in May of 1927.
The cocktail itself seemed a bit, uh, “girly”. Nice enough, and all, but more of the sort of drink you’d buy for that cute girl you are trying to impress, than the sort of thing you’d have as a brace up after crossing the Atlantic.
If you want to play along and don’t have Cocchi Americano, I’d again suggest 1 oz dry vermouth, dash angosutura, dash maraschino liqueur, and an orange twist squeezed into the tin. It’s pretty close and might even be better in this particular case.
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.
