I’m bored, so I’m taking random cocktail recipes from The Savoy Cocktail Book (1930), giving them a try, and modifying/improving them if I think it’s necessary, and reporting my findings here.
Young Man Cocktail
I flipped to the back of Savoy and found the Zed Cocktail:
But the mythical substance the Elders knew as “Hercules” remains beyond our grasp.
So I backed up a bit and went with the Young Man Cocktail.
[I heard that.]
It was good. It was okay good, though I doubt I shall ever make it again. But it was good enough that I didn’t need to fix it.
Another point to Savoy.
