|Apricot brandy||3.0cl 1.0oz|
This classic cocktail is adapted from the 1930s drink mentioned in The Savoy Cocktail Book. Some recipes call for peach liqueur and lemon juice with variations in measurements. I think this drink benefits greatly by adding a flamed orange peel (for the adventurous home bartender) or orange peel twisted over the drink without flame. Both work with slightly different aromatics.
Angel Face is a lovely autumn to winter cocktail, particularly excellent for holiday times with family gatherings. It’s formal and classy and balanced.
