I’m going back to my all time favorite spirit this week, gin. It’s been far too long since I’ve ventured down this path and it’s time I change that. This week we’re heading back to the pages of the Savoy for an old recipe. In flipping through the recipes, the Jockey Club Cocktail jumped out as a unique combination of interesting flavors. Another unique twist in this recipe is that it appears, at first glance, quite dry. Should be a good time.
