Happy Halloween and welcome to Vintage Cocktail Friday!
This week we are making a very appropriate cocktail: The Fallen Angel.
- 2 oz Gin
- Juice of 1 lemon or 1 lime
- 2 dashes crème de menthe
- 1 dash bitters
- Stir well with ice. Strain into cocktail glass and serve with a cherry.
It is from our “new” cocktail book, The Calvert Party Encyclopedia from 1964. We just picked this book up last weekend when we were on vacation.
And did you see that vintage cocktail stirrer? Oh yeah, it’s from Boom Boom Room. Love. It.
“How is it?”
The Verdict: Minty
From The Tasting Notes –
Minty and citrus-y, but you could still taste the gin. Which is a good thing, if you like gin. We ended up using a lime, so this drink tasted a tiny bit like a mojito, but without the sugary sweetness. Refreshing, and not scary at all.
