Review:

One man's 'dash' is another's 'splash'. At least that's how I've interpreted the amount of vermouth in this spirit-forward heavily calvados-influenced sipping cocktail. Would also suit being served over a large cube or chunk of block ice.

Variant:

Whist

History:

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

KICKER COCKTAIL.
2 Dashes Italian Vermouth.
1/3 Calvados.
2/3 Bacardi Rum.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

Harry Craddock, 1930
