Peter Pan Cocktail.
1/4 Peach Bitters. (1/2 oz Fee’s Peach Bitters)
1/4 Orange Juice. (1/2 oz Orange Juice)
1/4 French Vermouth. (1/2 oz Dolin Dry Vermouth)
1/4 Dry Gin. (1/2 oz Plymouth Gin)
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
I had some sort of idle hope that this would be at least interesting.
I suppose, after a fashion, it is.
The nice thing about it is the Peter Pan is, at least, a fairly dry cocktail. However, it really does taste, more or less, awful. That much peach bitters is just wrong.
Not only that, but I felt kind of bad after drinking it. Burping peach flavored burps, and feeling like it gave me an instant head ache. Maybe all that glycerine and propylene glycol doesn’t agree with me.
Should you order this cocktail at the next Savoy Night at Alembic Bar, July 26th?
Signs point to a definite, “No!”
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.
