Review:

The original Blinker from Patrick Gavin Duffy's 1934 The Official Mixer's Manual uses grenadine but the folk at Hawksmoor have switched this for a few fresh raspberries and a dash of sugar syrup, turning a good drink into a great cocktail.

History:

Adapted from a recipe discovered in 2013 at Hawksmoor, Spitalfields, London, England.

Alcohol content:

  • 1.7 standard drinks
  • 29.33% alc./vol. (58.66° proof)
  • 24.2 grams of pure alcohol
