Spencer

This is another drink from The Savoy Cocktail Book by Harry Craddock, and one that isn’t seen hardly at all as far as I can tell. Apricot Brandy can be a bit of a challenging ingredient to understand when used in a recipe like this, since it could either mean a true brandy distilled from Apricot juice, or it could also mean a sweet liqueur flavored with apricot flesh and seeds. We are going to assume that it is the liqueur that was intended for this cocktail.

Spencer
1 1/2 ounces gin
3/4 ounce apricot brandy
1 dash orange juice
1 dash Angostura Bitters
Garnish: Cherry and orange peel
Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass.
