Racquet Club Cocktail.
1 Dash Orange Bitters. (Angostura Orange Bitters)
1/3 French Vermouth. (3/4 oz Dolin French Vermouth)
2/3 Plymouth Gin. (1 1/2 oz Plymouth Gin)
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
While I don’t enjoy the Angostura Orange Bitters in fruity cocktails, I do really enjoy them in Martinis.
As to what differentiates the “Racquet Club” from a Plymouth Martini (Dry) or any number of other 2-1 Gin to Dry Vermouth Cocktails in the book, I cannot help you.
On the other hand, there is never anything wrong with a nice Racquet Club Cocktail! Though, you might want to wait until after your match. I’ve heard those balls can smart.
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.
