Coronation Cocktail (No. 1)
1/2 Sherry. (1 1/2 oz Domecq La Ina Fino Sherry)
1/2 French Vermouth. (1 1/2 oz Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth)
1 Dash Maraschino. (Luxardo)
2 Dashes Orange Bitters. (1 dash Regan’s, 1 dash Fee’s)
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
Again, prefer to build these sorts of things over rocks, so there you go.
This was really nice. I think I am coming around to dry sherry.
Earlier in the evening, I had been experimenting with Aviation proportions and different violet liqueurs. Palate was pretty jaded from it all. This was a pleasant, simple, relief from all that perfumed nonsense.
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.
