1/4 Lemon Juice. (generous 1/2 oz Lemon Juice)
1/4 Apricot Brandy. (scant 1/2 oz Rothman and Winter Orchard Apricot)
1/2 Dry Gin. (1 oz North Shore Distiller’s No. 6)
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
Apricot liqueur probably the only sensible choice, with that much Lemon Juice. Almost one of my truly favorite Chas. Baker drinks, The Pendennis Club Cocktail, but not quite. Lime instead of Lemon, some Peychaud’s bitters, and this baby could be rocking.
As it is, it is perfectly fine refresher. Not outstanding, but tasty enough.
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.
