Review:

Gin and herbal vermouth with zippy zesty orange.

My previous recipe comprised 30ml (1oz) gin, 15ml (½oz) orange curaçao, 30ml (1oz) rosso (sweet) vermouth, 45ml (1½oz) orange juice, and 1 dash orange bitters. In a quest for a recipe closer The Savoy's original, in January 2023, I amended to the above recipe – hopefully for the better.

History:

This cocktail emerged during Prohibition in America and its modern-day notoriety is mostly due to its inclusion in Harry Craddock's influential 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book.

Damn-The-Weather Cocktail
3 Dashes Curaçao.
¼ Orange Juice.
¼ Italian Vermouth.
½ Dry Gin.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

Harry Craddock, 1930
