For our first drink on Monday night, I spotted the Round the World from the Café Royal Cocktail Book. The drink caught my eye for it appeared like a cross between a Satan's Whiskers and a Monkey Gland. The former has a more similar structure with its equal part of orange liqueur and dash of orange bitters swapped for the Round the World's brandy and dash of absinthe. With the latter, the Monkey Gland is the one of most famous recipes that also contains gin, orange juice, and absinthe.
