AKA:

Jaberwocky

Review:

Mouth-puckeringly dry, this is a great aperitivo with quinine, fino sherry, gin botanicals and citrus all singing harmoniously.

History:

Named after Lewis Carroll's Jabberwoky poem, this recipe is adapted from one in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book which calls for a now defunct product called Caperitif. A notation accompanies Craddock's recipe, "This will made you gyre and gimble in the wabe until brillig all right, all right." Proving that be was a Lewis Carroll fan.

JABBERWOK Cocktail. *
2 Dashes Orange Bitters.
1/3 Dry Gin.
1/3 Dry Sherry.
1/3 Caperitif.
Stir well and strain into cocktail glass. Squeeze lemon peel on top.
* This will make you gyre and gimble in the wabe until brillig all right, all right.

Harry Craddock, 1930
