Review:

An aromatised 2:1 shaken Dry Martini with a tiny dose of grenadine, which turns this the merest rust-pink, while just a dash of absinthe adds wormwood complexity.

History:

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

SAVOY HOTEL SPECIAL COCKTAIL (No. 1.)*
1 Dash Absinthe.
2 Dashes Grenadine.
1/3 Fresh Vermouth.
2/3 Dry Gin.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass. Squeeze lemon on top.
* Peter, ninth Earl of Savoy, brought to England, as his wards, eighty-three of the most wealthy and beautiful girls in France. He then married them to the most powerful nobles in England. That is why he wore armour.

Harry Craddock, 1930
