Long Overlooked, but not Forgotten

This cocktail comes from Matthew Rowley’s “Lost Recipes of the Prohibition” (affiliate link), a great cocktail book I like to pick up from time to time. It’s a great place for drinks you’ve almost certainly never heard of – but that still have that pre-prohibition style.

 

While I wouldn’t exactly consider this cocktail a variation on a Negroni, the flavor (and appearance) is not too far off. The 1/2 oz of Campari brings the color and bitterness you’d expect, the gin brings the herbal notes – but that’s where the two cocktails diverge. Here, Cointreau adds sweetness alongside dry vermouth, which adds complexity and reinforces the herbal qualities in the gin.

 

So while it isn’t a Negroni… I’d say it’s not a bad alternative if you’re feeling like something just a bit different.

It’s a lot like a Negroni, but more complex and just a touch sweeter.

    If there was ever a cocktail that calls for a cocktail pick in the shape of a sword, it’s this one. Lucien Gaudin was an Olympic fencer!

    • I did not know that! If only we had sword shaped cocktail picks…
