Review:

Gin-laced zesty citrus with subtle freshening mint with aromatic bitters adding depth of flavour and complexity.

History:

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

FALLEN ANGEL COCKTAIL.
1 Dash Angostura Bitters.
2 Dashes Crème de Menthe.
The Juice of 1 Lemon or ½ Lime.
1 Glass Dry Gin.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
It has never been made quite clear as to whether this is intended to be taken by the Angel before or after falling; as an encouragement or as a consolation.

Harry Craddock, 1930
