Tonight it is time to feature a classic. This is the 20th Century cocktail made with gin, cacao liqueur, Lillet blanc and fresh lemon juice.
If you've looked at page 224 in Jim Meehan's beautiful book “Meehan's Bartender Manual” you've seen a stunning photo of this cocktail already. In our shoot we also wanted to capture that pale yellow colour and subtle appearance of the cocktail.
But what it lacks in colour is well compensated in flavour. It's the combination of the tart gin and the sweet chocolate liqueur that defines this cocktail and make it so delicious.
1,5 oz gin
0,75 oz crème de cacao (clear)
0,75 oz Lillet blanc
0,75 oz lemon juice
Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass
