The Love Cocktail

Need to charm a new love? Rekindle the flame of an old one? Want to forget your first love? 

Or, are you simply thirsty? 

Here's a cool vintage recipe from 1935's Mr. Boston's Bartending Book to try--it's called The Love Cocktail.

1 1/2 oz of top shelf gin (Plymouth)
1 egg white
2 dashes (1/3 tsp) fresh lemon juice
2 dashes (1/3 tsp) raspberry syrup

Combine and shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

We bet that the person you serve this drink to will say: "You're the cat's pajamas!" (Or, at least he or she might think it.)

A shout-out to the bartenders from Daddy-O's Martinis for finding this! www.daddyosmartinis.blogspot.com
