Pendennis Club Cocktail

Review:

Tangy, subtle, sweet, and sour. Depending on your apricot liqueur you may want to add 2.5ml to 5ml sugar syrup.

History:

This classic is named after the Pendennis Club in Louisville, Kentucky, which is said by some to be the birthplace of the Old-Fashioned. The first known reference to this cocktail appears in the "Seductive American Cocktails" appendix in William "Cocktail Bill" Boothby's 1908 The World's Drinks and How to Mix Them book.

PENDENNIS CLUB COCKTAIL
(Louisville, KY.)
One-quarter Apricot brandy, one-quarter French Vermouth, one-half Coates Plymouth gin; shake well, and serve very cold.

William Boothby, 1934
