Suffragette Cocktail

Suffragette CocktailThis cocktail was advertised in Pittsburg (USA) in 1909 and the ad that appeared then is certainly cringworthy by the standards of today.

The advertisement stated that –
• One makes a man listen to the suffragette case,
• two makes him think the cause has some merit,
• three makes him a convert and
• four makes him go home to do the dishes.

To make this cocktail you will need -
• 30ml sloe gin
• 30ml dry vermouth
• 30ml sweet vermouth
• Dash of orange bitters
• Lemon


Put the sloe gin, dry vermouth, and sweet vermouth in a mixing glass filled with ice and stir until well chilled. Then strain into a cocktail glass and Garnish with a lemon twist.
