On Saturday night, I was flipping through Jacques Straub's 1914 Drinks when I was finally lured into making the Sabath [sic] Cocktail. Overall, the recipe was very much like the Coffee Cocktail, except that the Coffee Cocktail unlike the Sabath Cocktail, well um, strangely lacks coffee. With recent java-containing successes such as No. 9 Park's Orinoco and the coffee-infused pisco-containing Zambito, I was curious to see how well the Sabath Cocktail would fair.
