Earthquake

Ingredients

Harry Craddock’s 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book puts an English spin on “The Earthquake Cocktail” with a recipe that specifies Gin, Whisky, and Absinthe. The cocktail’s name is derived from the notion that “if an earthquake was to happen while drinking this cocktail, then it doesn’t matter.”

INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 oz Absinthe
  • 1 oz Gin
  • 1 oz Bourbon

PREPARATION

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well for 10-15 seconds or until the outside of the shaker becomes frosted. Strain into an ice-filled brandy glass. Garnish with a lime slice and serve.
