First appearing in print in the Savoy Cocktail Book (1930), this next cocktail bucks the trend of many prohibition era cocktails by being bright, lively and fresh. And while at first it seems to be a fairly simple cocktail, the addition of a whopping 3/4 oz of bitters quickly takes simple out of the equation.

Utilizing Calvados as a base spirit, this drink is light and refreshing without being overly sweet. The extra helping of bitters actually work splendidly, creating a fantastic balance. Cheers!
