We here at LFL have many rare book treasures. One of them being, "The Savoy Cocktail Book" by Harry Craddock. Craddock, born in 1876, worked at London's Savoy Hotel in the 1920s. In 1930, he compiled a slew of drink recipes and published this book.
Because many of us like to loosen up on Friday night's and have a drink or two (or more), we thought we'd give you a little glimpse of Craddock's compilation and post a different recipe each Friday. So, for this first installment of Friday Nite Cocktail, we'd like to share with you the Poop Deck Cocktail as found in Craddock's book.
1/2 Blackberry Brandy
1/4 Port Wine
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
If the measurements confuse you as they confused me, don't worry. I found a video.
Drink up and enjoy.
