Review:

Sue may not be particularly saucy, but she certainly has spirit – equal parts calvados and cognac with the merest splash of apricot liqueur and a dash of absinthe.

History:

This "exhumed classic" was brought to our attention by Jason E. Clapham and originally appeared in Harry Craddock's 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book:
"Saucy Sue Cocktail
1 Dash Apricot Brandy.
1 Dash Absinthe.
½ Calvados.
½ Brandy.
Stir well and squeeze orange peel on top.
"

This cocktail is eponymously named after a British filly racehorse famed for winning both the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and The Oaks at Epsom Downs Racecourse. She raced between July 1924 and October 1925 winning eight of her ten races.

Nutrition:

There are approximately 161 calories in one serving of Saucy Sue.
