Classic Cocktail


12. September 2014 by swizzzlestick

The Classic Cocktail, found in The Savoy Cocktail Book,  is the perfect “Good Night” drink, especially if you like brandy and Maraschino (a liqueur from Dalmatia, obtained from the distillation of Marasca cherries) so much than I do.


1/2 oz. Lemon Juice, 1/2 oz. Curaçao, 1/2 oz. Maraschino, 1 and 1/2 oz. Brandy, garnish: Lemon Peel and Brandied Cherry (optional, the original recipe does not ask for a cherry)


Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass with a frosted sugar rim. Squeeze lemon peel on top and garnish with a cherry.
