1/3 Apricot Brandy (3/4 oz Rothman & Winter)
1/3 Sloe Gin (3/4 oz Atxa Patxaran)
1 dash Grenadine (1/4 oz)
Juice 1 Lime (1 oz)
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. I added a lime wheel garnish.
Two Saturdays ago, I reached for Hugo Ensslin's 1917 Recipes for Mixed Drinks and spotted the Millionaire No. 1. While I have had variations of this century old classic by way of the cachaça and Damson gin Brazilion Million and the hybrid Millionaire of Havana, I have not had the classic itself. Although to put a curve ball in the formulation, I opted for patxaran, a sloe berry infused liqueur, instead of sloe gin proper.
