Review:

Lemon juice balances this bourbon and crème de cacco-based red-coloured cocktail that is perhaps best served as an after-dinner cocktail.

History:

The second of two Commodore cocktails in Albert S. Crockett's 1931 Old Waldorf Bar Days, both served frappé. Crockett's Commodore No.1 is rum-based and without crème de cacao liqueur. He stimulates the No.2 recipe as:
"One-third Lemon juice
One-third Bourbon Whiskey
One-third Crème de Cacao
Dash Grenadine Syrup
Frappé in champagne glass"

Nutrition:

One serving of Commodore No.2 contains 133 calories.

Alcohol content:

  • 0.9 standard drinks
  • 16.13% alc./vol. (32.26° proof)
  • 12.9 grams of pure alcohol
