Review:

Medium-dry, spiritous aromatised apple with delicate grape/berry fruit and faint orange.

History:

The Ante notably features in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book with the following recipe:
"1 Dash Angostura Bitters
¼ Hercules
¼ Cointreau
½ Calvados or apple brandy
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
"

The Savoy recipe calls for Hercules, a sadly long since defunct product that vintage newspaper advertisements for the brand describe as being a "Maté-Wine Apéritif" with an "alcohol strength over 25°."

Our recipe (updated August 2020) reflects one we found back in 2006 on DrinkBoy.com which substitutes Dubonnet Red for Hercules.
