Blackthorn Cocktail


13. July 2014 by swizzzlestick

There have been several renditions of the Blackthorn Cocktail. For Ted Haigh, aka Dr. Cocktail, “Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails“, the following one is the most singular one.


2 oz. Gin, 3/4 oz. Dubonnet Rouge, 3/4 oz. Kirschwasser, 1 splash Lemon Bitters (optional, my only variation to this recipe), garnish: Lemon Twist, Brandied Cherry


Stir ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist and a brandied cherry. Enjoy!

  1. The version in the Savoy is absolutely horrible, so stick with this one!
