September Morn, a vintage cocktail recipe
On this dreary September morn, we wanted to share a recipe from The Savoy Cocktail Book--which concentrates on recipes from the 1920s and '30s--to put a little color in your day. The cocktail culture of this era was all about decadence and fun, and this drink has both qualities. The citrus makes a fine counterpoint to the vanilla and almond of the rum, with the sweetness of the grenadine and the velvet of the egg white blending seamlessly in this lively sip.
