Try a modern take on a classic Pendennis Cocktail


The Pendennis Cocktail has had many variations since its heyday in the 1940s. Try our version: In an ice-filled shaker, combine 2 ounces Plymouth gin, ¾ ounce Rothman & Winter apricot liqueur, ¾ ounce lime juice and 2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters, shake 17 to 20 seconds and strain into a cocktail glass. It boasts a nose of grapefruit, orchard fruit and fresh white flowers with a tart, bright, clean and lightly bitter finish.
