Doctor Cocktail (#3)


I found this recipe in a photo of a 1900s vintage restaurant menu. Jotted under the name Dr. Cocktail were three simple ingredients in equal proportions. The only spirit is Swedish punsch, a bottled punch that was very popular a century ago. This concoction (the bottle is mine and the label is inaccurately displaying a popular Swedish punch brand that is not available near me) is a mix of rum and Batavia Arrack that is sweetened and spiced with cardamon and cloves. I made this version using flavored spirits as well as natural spices.

Note: Difford's Guide says that this recipe is also known as the Doctor #3.

  • 1 oz. Swedish Punsch (Homemade version used)
  • 1 oz. orange juice
  • 1 oz. lime juice

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