Colonial Cocktail

Colonial Cocktail

2/3 Dry Gin. (2 oz Plymouth Gin)
1/3 Grape Fruit Juice. (1 oz fresh squeezed Grapefruit Juice)
3 Dashes Maraschino. (Luxardo)

Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

While I wouldn’t quite call this a “great” or “amazing” cocktail, it is pleasantly refreshing and enjoyable enough. I imagine it would be quite nice on a hot day. If we ever had any of those here in San Francisco.

One thing I noticed was that this flavor combination really highlighted the nutty flavor aspects of the Luxardo Maraschino.

Not too far from the Daiquiri variant reputedly enjoyed by Hemingway, eh?

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.

  3. I find this is greatly improved with a 1/4 oz of maraschino liqueur rather than dashes. But I much prefer Maraska to Luxardo (although Luxardo maraschino cherries are awesome).
