This deep red drink is visually very striking, plus it’s also delicious.
A cocktail to welcome 2020. This is The Queen Mother cocktail.
Princess Mary’s Pride felt so fitting to stir up during Pride moth!
We are actually really pleased about how elegantly this cocktail turned out. There are so many delicate flavours precent, which are probably enabled by the low ABV.
Take a sip on this one . . . close your yeux . . . écouter . . . et voilà vous êtes en France. Santé!
The “Duboudreau” is our second post, out of four, with cocktails from Jamie Boudreau’s The Canon Cocktail Book.
Zaza Cocktail is another classic cocktail you find in many cocktail books and is a combination of Gin and Dubonnet. The history of Dubonnet starts 1846 when the chemist Joseph Dubonnet in an effort to make French Foreign Legionnaires drink quinine to battle malaria in North Africa. Since quinine is very bitter he blended it with fortified wine and herbs and the Dubonnet aperitif was born.
In Harry Craddock’s legendary “The Savoy Cocktail Book” we found the recipe for this cocktail, created already in 1922 to mark the wedding celebrations of Her Royal Highness Princess Mary.
