White Cargo Cocktail

The White Cargo Cocktail
1/2 Vanilla Ice Cream. (1 oz Ciao Bella Vaniglia Gelato)
1/2 Gin. (1 oz Tanqueray Gin)
No ice is necessary; just shake until thoroughly mixed, and add water or white wine if the concoction is too thick.

Another prohibition era indulgence ripped from the torrid pages of Judge Jr.’s 1927 “Here’s How”, the White Cargo is really pretty awful.

Without the soda fizz of the Silver Stallion, or finesse of the Soyer-au-Champagne, the White Cargo’s only real “virtue” is the slightly salacious name.

I assume, one feeds this to one’s date before knocking them out and selling them into the White Slave Trade!? They are certainly going to be very grumpy when they wake up on that slow boat to China with a vanilla flavored hangover.

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.
