By its bitter-sweet taste this cocktail is especially suited to be a luncheon aperitif.
Place the following mixture in the shaker:
2 Dessertspoonsful Orange Marmalade. (1 tsp. D’Arbo Bitter Orange Marmalade)
The Juice of 1 big or 2 small Lemons. (Juice 1/2 small lemon)
4 Glasses Gin. (2 oz Death’s Door Gin)
Shake carefully and pour out, squeezing a piece of orange rind into each glass.
As usual re-doing the recipe for 1.
The lemons I found last week were a bit on the green side. When I tasted it before shaking, it wasn’t quite there. Definitely needed a little extra simple to bring it into line.
An enjoyable cocktail! A bit of a pain to double strain, due to the marmalade.
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.
