|The Savoy Cocktail Book|
What is so cool about this version is it is suppose to be EXACTLY like the original, complete with all of the illustrations.

For today I decided on an American Beauty Cocktail...because well I'm an American Beauty!
|Recipe....it doesn't mention ice...but I added some to the shaker!|
After one quick trip to the liquor store for some brandy, I was all set. (Don't forget you will need port too...I didn't notice that before I left, but luckily we had a bottle on hand...and don't go without it, it really adds to the drink!)
This one is pretty easy! Since the ratio was 1/4 of the main four ingredients, I used 1oz of each which worked well because two of the fours are mixers...so you basically end up with roughly a 2oz strong drink. Also that makes it the perfect size drink to use in a iced hi-ball glass.
|All shook up!|
