East India (1990 version)
February 11, 2019
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.
