This Episodes Cast of Characters
Welcome to another episode of the Gentlemen of Elegant Leisure. For your listening and drinking pleasure, this time out the Gents try an old classic and a not so old classic.
First up is one from the 1930's and found in the old Waldorf Astoria cocktail book.
The Hop Toad
1 1/2 oz aged Rum
1/2 oz Apricot liqueur
1/2 oz fresh Lime Juice
2 dashes Aromatic Bitters
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
If you liked the Hop Toad, the Gents think you will also like this one. Is it old? Who knows. It sure is tasty though!
1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz dry vermouth
1/2 oz Calvados
1/2 oz Grand Marnier
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry
Please try them both and leave a comment as to which you preferred. The Gents love to hear from you.
Also, if you know Ryan Reynolds can you please get him to get in touch with us? Thanks!
