According to the legend, the three Bentley Boys – car-loving, British playboy racers – invented the drink after their first of five Le Mans victories, in 1924. The Bentley has an elegance and complexity with the combination of Calvados, a French apple brandy and Dubonnet, an aromatised wine. Popularised after being featured in Harry Craddock’s Savoy Cocktail Book.
The Corpse Reviver No. 2 was first published in Harry Craddock’s The Savoy Cocktail Book in the 1930s. Easy to remember but don’t underestimate the intricate flavours of this classic cocktail. Bold, bright and citrusy with a hint of sweet fennel.
