Jen Fizz was exploring the drinks in our 1974 edition of Mr. Boston’s Deluxe Official Cocktail Guide when she came across the Crystal Slipper Cocktail. Since that was a success, she opened up the book and decided to make the first thing she saw that sounded good.
And she found a winner; the Western Rose Cocktail is really nice. It is sort of like an apricot martini.
The Western Rose Cocktail
1/2 oz Apricot Brandy
1 oz Dry Gin
1/2 oz Dry Vermouth
1/4 tsp Lemon Juice
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
After we drank the Western Rose, I found another drink on the same page that looked pretty good. It’s up next.
