Friday Night Cocktail

Last Friday I was making cocktails for Christina and Tom. We went through several as my hangover will attest and this was one of them. I think it was the last cocktail of the night, which would explain why I made it differently than the instructions in the Savoy Cocktail Book.Displaying IMG_2643.JPG

In fairness to me, I was trying to half the recipe as I went.

I’ve since made it again for one person and although I think it’s slightly different from the cocktail as originally intended, I still really like it!DSCF4894What
