Master of Cocktails: The Ford Cocktail

Master of Cocktails Ford

Greetings ladies and gents. It's time for this week's #MasterofCocktails - we're doing a great little twist on a Wet Martini today - it's a Ford Cocktail recipe. I first encountered this a year or two ago at Burger & Lobster, and managed to find a recipe last week on diffordsguide but couldn't for the life of me find it again.

Luckily, @arranhoops and @SngleMaltWhimsy both pointed out that it was a Ford Cocktail and will shortly be receiving something nice in the post. Right then, on to the recipe.

Master of Cocktails - The Corpse Reviver No. 2

Master of Cocktails Corpse Reviver No 2

Right then chaps – it's #MasterofCocktails time once again. This week we made another real classic – The Corpse Reviver No. 2.

It's yet another excellent recipe taken from The Savoy Cocktail Book – a superb compendium you all should own.

The Corpse Reviver No. 2 is also one of those drinks that manages to lives up to the awesome name it's been given. Unsurprisingly, it was originally a hair of the dog drink, with Craddock warning readers that "four of these taken in swift succession will unrevive the corpse again"! It can certainly be enjoyed at any time though. We've made a few substitutions here – most notably Pierre Ferrand Curaçao has been brought in on account of its yumminess.

Master of Cocktails - The Chrysanthemum

Master of Cocktails The Chrysanthemum

Happy New Year! Time for this week's #MasterofCocktails. No #Dryathlon for us, thank you very much.

If though, like us, you've had an entire Christmas of rich stuff and beery nonsense, you'll be happy to learn that all through January we're going to be preparing some slightly lighter cocktails. All January's drinks will be *under* 2 units.

This is quite a challenge in itself – most cocktails contain at least a double-measure of strong booze, but nevertheless. We're not cheating and making small drinks either. These are all proper-sized, delicious cocktails.

So, without further ado – this week we made a 'Chrysanthemum'. If the combination of the name and low ABV are making you feel uncomfortable, don't worry. It's got absinthe in it. Mmm...
