Weekend cocktail

I just flipped through my 1930s cocktail recipe book and found a Buzzer cocktail so here’s a drink for my friends in Leighton Buzzard.


1/4 gill of Dry Gin

1/4 gill of Italian Vermouth

1 teaspoonful of Crème de Menthe

2 dashes of Angostura Bitters

1 Cherry

1/2 shakerful of broken Ice

The shaker is half filled with broken ice and the Angostura Bitters added. Then add the Dry Gin, the Italian Vermouth and the Crème de Menthe. Shake well and pass through a strainer into a cocktail glass. Serve with a cherry.

A pleasant and fairly strong cocktail, apparently.


That’s Hollywood’s depiction of the Buzz, of course.
