Gin and Cape Cocktail

Gin and Cape Cocktail

1/2 Caperitif. (generous 1 oz Lillet Blanc)
1/2 Dry Gin. (generous 1 oz No. 209 Gin)

Stir well and strain into cocktail glass. Squeeze lemon (oops! used orange instead.) peel on top.

Again, no real idea what Caperitif may have been like, so substituting Lillet Blanc, as suggests.

A perfectly enjoyable cocktail. A dash or two of bitters would probably perk it up quite a bit.

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.
