After Supper Cocktail

1/2 Apricot Brandy (1 oz Vedrenne Liqueur de Abricot)
1/2 Curacao (1 oz Rhum Clément Liqueur Creole Shrubb)
4 dashes Lemon Juice

OK, this is still really sweet; but, it is also really tasty.

Of the three “After…” cocktails, this is my favorite formulation. Yum!

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.

Birthday Haul


How great is it when you don’t go to WhiskyFest and get, (birthday,) swag!

Wife treks all the way to Brooklyn to bring back Amaro and Whiskey. Friends give you home made liqueur and vermouth. And another friend you met through the Internet gives you a copy of one of Irwin Cobb’s books.

Plus, enjoying the company of these same family and friends at several of Northern California’s finer establishments.

Pretty sweet, really.
