Silver Streak Cocktail


Silver Streak Cocktail
1/2 Kummel. (1 oz Krogstad Aquavit*)
1/2 Dry Gin. (1 oz Aviation Gin*)
(10ml Rich Simple Syrup)
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

That Silver Bullet was the last straw. Kaiser Kummel sucks. I refuse to play with it any more.

So, instead I am sweetening Aquavit from here on out.

Since, in an unusual set of circumstances I had an Aquavit and a Gin from House Spirits in Portland Oregon, I figured it was a good chance to do some Prohibition era mixing and combine them.

I shall make this cocktail with 1/2 Gin and 1/2 Aquavit.

Strangely, this isn’t bad!  Super cold, refreshing, and boozy.

Ultimately, it’s a Sling: Booze, sugar and water.  I wish I’d thought to use Gum Syrup, it seems like this cocktail might have benefited.

Strangely, I’m not sure what this cocktail might have been named after.  Though, amusingly, I named my first ten speed, “The Silver Streak,” after the Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder movie of the same name.

*Both the Krogstad Aquavit and Aviation Gin were sent to me by House Spirits, the company which produces them.

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.
