Gloom Chaser Cocktail

Gloom Chaser Cocktail

1/4 Lemon Juice. (1/2 oz Lemon Juice)
1/4 Grenadine. (1/2 oz Homemade Grenadine)
1/4 Grand Marnier. (1/2 oz Grand Marnier)
1/4 Curacao. (1/2 oz Senior Curacao of Curacao)

Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

Really puzzling. Two kinds of orange liqueur and grenadine? Even more puzzling if you consider Grand Marnier to actually be a type of Curacao liqueur.

Unforuntately, I can find no indication that this recipe is incorrect. I kind of hoped that would be the case. Maybe someone swapped Curacao for Cognac or something.

But no, this ridiculously sweet recipe appears to be correct.

And, yeah, this is ridiculously sweet. The flavors aren’t bad but it turned out to be one of those few Savoy cocktails I couldn’t finish. Just too sweet. Makes my teeth hurt just thinking about it again.

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.
