The Dandy cocktail is one of the many forgotten recipes from Harry Craddock’s Savoy Cocktail Book. The original formula calls for equal parts of bourbon and Dubonnet, creating a complex variant on a classic Manhattan. A well balanced combination of spirit, liqueur and aromatic wine.
The East India is a brandy-forward, boozy concoction. With only a few modifiers in small measures, this one packs a punch. Note that this particular recipe isn’t the original version of the East India cocktail that was published in 1882 but rather a subsequent version that was released 18 years later in the year 1900. The original version was raspberry syrup instead of pineapple syrup and Bokers bitters instead of Angostura.
Jeffrey Morgenthaler discovered the Jägerita back in 2008. Whilst tending a bar at a private party, professional bartender David Cordoba stepped behind to craft a Jägerita. You wouldn’t think a cocktail comprised of Jägermeister and citrus would work, but it’s surprisingly amazing.
The Illusion is a super sweet & delicious cocktail ideal for summer time sipping. This drink can easily be built or shaken. It consists of a large measure of Midori with a splash of both Cointreau & vodka topped with pineapple juice.
