Vermouth and Curacao Cocktail

Vermouth and Curacao Cocktail
1 Glass French Vermouth. (2 oz Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth)
1/2 Liqueur Glass Curacao. (3/4 oz Clement Liqueur Creole Shrubb)
Use medium size glass and fill with soda water (Err, Cavas Hill Cava. What?).

Like this Vermouth and Cassis Cocktail, this is another from Harry McElhone’s 1928 “ABC of Cocktails”, and like the Vermouth and Cassis, there really isn’t too much to get excited about.

Using Champagne ups the ante slightly, but I dunno, there just isn’t that much to the combo of Vermouth and Curacao. Nothing wrong with it exactly, just not that exciting.

If you make it, I’d at least spice it up with some Orange Bitters.

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.
