From the bartender’s corner – A1 (made from Dutch Courage)
To continue with the Dutch Courage series, last evening, before sitting with music, tried to make a cocktail that was originally featured in Cafe Royal Cocktail Book in 1937 by W.J.Tarling. The idea was to see how much the Grand Mariner could prevail over the junipers or the lemons. The answer – completely overwhelmed. I frankly could not detect much of the junipers or lemon in the drink. On the sweeter side, this was more of a orange based cocktail.
The soft and sweet color is the effect of the Grand Marnier and grenadine.
Gin (Dutch Courage), Grand Marnier, dash of grenadine and a dash of lemon juice.
