2 dash Apricot Liqueur (1/2 oz Rothman & Winter)
2 dash Dry Vermouth (1/2 oz Noilly Prat)
2 dash Lemon Juice (1/2 oz)
1 dash Peychaud's Bitters
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. I added a lemon twist.
After the Gilda Cocktail, I opened up Pioneers of Mixing at Elite Bars: 1903-1933 and found the Boomer. Obviously this book pre-dates the Baby Boomers by a generation or two for it falls during the General Issue (1900s-1920s) and Silent (1920s-1940s) Generations. During the late 19th century until the 1920s, a boomer was a transient worker who would travel from boom town to the next in search of temporary jobs; this included everyone from bridge builders to thieves. With its ingredients, it reminded me of a few drinks including the Darb, Prudence Prim, and Forty Eight cocktails.
