Babbie's Special Cocktail

This is a funny cocktail with a funny name. I enjoyed it, though it is much too sweet for my taste. Using apricot brandy as the base of a cocktail comes across as very old-world, especially when using cream to make a dessert drink. One saving grace that I appreciate is the teaspoon of gin which can make a big impact on the flavor of a dessert drink.

In this case I used Copper Fox Vir Gin because it is so richly flavored and really suited to dessert drinks. You get anise, basil, malted barley: lots of flavors that go well with a creamy fruit drink from just a touch of Vir Gin gin.
  • 2 oz. apricot brandy
  • 1 oz. half-and-half
  • 1 tsp. gin (Copper Fox Vir Gin used)
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
