Marny Cocktail

Marny Cocktail

Marny Cocktail

1/3 Grand Marnier. (3/4 oz Grand Marnier)
2/3 Dry Gin. (1 1/2 oz North Shore No. 6)

Shake (I stirred) well and strain into cocktail glass.

Really pimping the North Shore, lately!

Sorry, I really dig their gin, even though it isn’t very widely available.

Anyway, obviously, this cocktail pre-dates the Hitchcock movie of the similar (“Marnie”) name by about 35 years. So no connection there.

Not exactly awful, neither is the Marny particularly compelling. That is, unless you like slightly sweet, cognac and orange flavored gin. A dash of bitters or a twist would likely go a long way towards improving it.

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.

    • Just been doing some cocktail name research – the Saucy Sue is possibly named after the race horse owned by Waldorf Astor. The horse lived from 1922-1937 and was moderately famous.

  1. I haven’t been out shopping recently, but the last place I saw North Shore’s products was at Ledger’s in Berkeley. Wish I’d bought their Aquavit along with the No. 6! Don’t remember seeing any vodka.
