Orange zest twist
How to make:
SHAKE first 5 ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass. Carefully POUR grenadine into centre of drink so that it sinks to create a sunrise effect.
|3/4 fl oz||Rutte Dry Gin|
|1 fl oz||Avallen Calvados|
|1 fl oz||Giffard Abricot du Roussillon liqueur|
|1 fl oz||Orange juice (freshly squeezed)|
|2 dash||Angostura Aromatic Bitters|
|1/12 fl oz||Giffard Grenadine syrup|
Read about cocktail measures and measuring.
Although it spoils the sunrise effect, this drink is less tart if the syrup lying on the bottom is stirred into the drink (or, better, included when shaking).
Created in September 1930 by Tom Buttery at the Berkeley Hotel, London and first published in William J. "Billy" Tarling's 1937 Café Royal Bar Book. There are now many versions of this classic cocktail (David Embury's The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks lists three), the above recipe is my favourite.
