Review:

A great grassy, minty digestif with a good balance between acidity and sweetness.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book.

MINT COCKTAIL
Soak a few sprigs of fresh mint for two hours in a glass and a half of White Wine. Add half a glass of Crème de Menthe, 2 glasses of Gin and 1½ glasses of White Wine. Ice and shake thoroughly.
Serve with a sprig of mint tastefully arranged in each glass.

Harry Craddock, 1930
