Review:

A trio of spirits tamed by a splash of aromatised wine. Temperature of serve is key so be sure to chill your glass and ideally your ingredients well. Although not classic, I like to serve with an orange zest twist.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book. The Savoy recipe calls for Hercules, a sadly long since defunct product that vintage newspaper advertisements for the brand describe as being a "Maté-Wine Apéritif" with an "alcohol strength over 25°." Hence, I've used another wine-based aperitif.

WOW COCKTAIL.
¼ Bacardi Rum.
¼ Hercules.
¼ Calvados or Apple Brandy.
¼ Brandy.

Harry Craddock, 1930
