Charles Lindbergh

Review:

Gin-laced with zesty citrus and rich apricot but made special and balanced by subtle quinine bitterness.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book. Craddock's recipe calls for two now defunct products, Kina Lillet (a quinquina) and Pricota (a British-made apricot liqueur).

CHARLIE LINDBERGH COCKTAIL.
2 Dashes Orange Juice.
2 Dashes Pricota.
½ Kina Lillet.
½ Plymouth Gin.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass. Squeeze lemon peel on top.

Harry Craddock, 1930
