Cocktail Recipes, pt. XXX

The Twentieth Century Cocktail
• 1 1/2 oz Gin
• 3/4 oz Lillet Blanc
• 3/4 oz Creme de Cacao (light)
• 3/4 oz Lemon Juice
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. This famous late 1930's recipe was taken from Ted Haigh's Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails proved to be rather light and refreshing.

Weeper's Joy
• 1 oz Kümmel
• 1 oz Sweet Vermouth
• 1 oz Absinthe
• 2 dash Curacao
• 1/2 tsp Gomme Syrup
Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. For this recipe from Woodrich's Imbibe!, we used Helbing Kümmel, Noilley Prat Sweet Vermouth, Versinthe Absinthe, Senior Curacao of Curacao, and homemade gomme syrup. While the gomme syrup (sugar, water, gum arabic) does smooth out the rough edges of the drink, regular simple syrup would substitute adequately. The Sweet Vermouth added a pleasant richness to the drink to balance the complexity of the Kümmel and Absinthe.

High Hat Cocktail
• 2 oz Rye
• 1/2 oz Cherry Heering
• 1/2 oz Lemon Juice
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. I found this simple yet delightful "Manhattan/Brooklyn adaptation" in the A Dash of Bitters blog.

Fancy Free Cocktail
• 2 oz Bourbon
• 1/2 oz Maraschino Liqueur
• 2 dash Angostura Bitters
• 2 dash Orange Bitters
Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. After having this made for me at the Green Street Grill, I decided to make a pair at home using a recipe from BarMixMaster blog.

The Lemony Snicket Cocktail
• 2 1/2 oz Gin
• 1/2 oz Lemon Juice
• 1/2 oz Limoncello
• 1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. I found this recipe in Chuck Taggart's blog. The recipe was created by Ted Haigh to commemorate his getting a gig as a graphic designer for the Lemony Snicket movie. The recipe is rather boozy and could be scaled down a bit in my opinion. This drink appeared at our Groundhog's Day party cocktail menu which seemed to please a L.S. fan in attendance.
