Balm Cocktail

Balm Cocktail
(6 People)

1/2 Glass Orange Juice. (1/2 oz fresh squeezed)
1/2 Glass Cointreau (1/2 oz)
3 Glasses sherry. (3 oz Lustau Don Nuno Dry Oloroso)
1 Dash Orange Bitters. (Regan’s)
2 Dashes Pimento Dram liqueur. (Homemade)

Fill up the shaker with cracked ice shake and serve with an olive.

The olive garnish doesn’t make any sense to me. Also not sure if this is the appropriate Sherry. But, I’m still coming to terms with Dry Sherries.

In any case, this isn’t a bad cocktail, if you like orange, spice, and sherry. Just isn’t quite as short and sharp as a the usual liquor based cocktails. A pleasant appetizer cocktail.

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.
