The Magnolia Blossom Cocktail
1/4 Lemon Juice (1/2 oz Lemon Juice)
1/4 Cream. (1/2 oz Cream)
1/2 Gin. (1 oz Plymouth Gin)
1 Dash Grenadine. (1/2 tsp. Homemade)
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
Another cocktail ripped from the pages of Judge Jr’s prohibition era tome, “Here’s How”. Mr. Jr. notes that this cocktail was “Originated by Finley White of Durham, N.C., where the bull comes from.”
Interesting in that most cream based cocktails are on the sweet side. The Magnolia Blossom, on the other hand, tastes mostly like gin flavored yoghurt. Kind of nice if, like me, you enjoy that sort of thing.
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.
