Campden Cocktail

Campden2

Short, sharp and sophisticated, just like this recipe, the Campden tastes like something a 1920s flapper girl would have drunk at a real-life Great Gatsby party.

INGREDIENTS

1/2 Dry gin (we used 30ml)

1/4 Cointreau (we used 15ml)

1/4 Lillet (we used 15ml)

GLASS

Cocktail – for best results, chill it first

METHOD

Shake everything with loads of ice. Strain into glass and sip while saying something sassy.

DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY

Daaaaahling, any idiot can make this one. Be a dear and fetch me another, would you?

RECIPE BY

This recipe is from The Savoy Cocktail Book by Harry Craddock (first published 1930 by Constable & Co; this edition published 1987 by Spring Books).
