Cocktail Wednesdays: Alfonso (Special) Cocktail
The posts have become few and far between, I know. A hard day - a hard week so far- and it's a good day for a cocktail. I opened Harry Craddock's Savoy Cocktail Book, and we settled on the Alfonso (Special) Cocktail.
Alfonso (Special) Cocktail
1 dash Angostura Bitters
4 dashes Sweet Vermouth
1 oz Dry Gin
1 oz French Vermouth
2 oz Orange Liqueur
Shake over ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
The verdict: The main flavor is that of the orange liqueur, but it is tempered by the rest of the cocktail. Scott especially likes it.
