We’re back to that venerable tome, the Savoy Cocktail Book. Today’s drink was, presumably, named after the card game. It utilizes two different spirits, something modern bartenders often frown upon, but a practice that was fairly common back in the Golden Age of cocktails. In this case, they are rum and calvados, a French apple brandy. Let it be noted that I have yet to thoroughly enjoy any cocktail I’ve made with calvados.
1 oz. white rum
1 oz. Italian (sweet) vermouth (I used Carpano Antica)
2 oz. calvados
Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
God. Jesus. Fuck. That’s awful. One liver.
