Racquet Club Cocktail

Racquet Club Cocktail

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.

    This is exactly what I was thinking as reading, hah! I love simple recipes like this and am looking forward to trying it. I’m also going to keep an eye out for the Savoy Cocktail Book, I’m getting quite the collection of “classic cocktail” references.
