Raiders of the Lost Cocktail #2- Dolly O'Dare



I know, I know, I already have an entry into this month's Raiders of the Lost Cocktail, but when I mentioned Raiders to my friend and fellow Oregon Bartenders Guild member Daniel Shoemaker of the TearDrop Lounge last weekend, he turned around grabbed a bottle of apricot brandy, whipped up a Dolly O' Dare Cocktail from the Savoy Cocktail book and placed it in front of me. Delicious.

Dolly O'Dare Cocktail (From the Savoy Cocktail Book)

6 dashes apricot brandy
1/2 French Vermouth
1/2 Gin

Shake well and strain into cocktail glass. Squeeze orange peel on top.

On another note, I've just tasted the best whiskey I've ever had. Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey arrived today and after dinner I poured myself a little bit and plopped an ice cube into my glass. Wow. I'll write a full review soon, but I have to say that not only have they created a unique style of whiskey with Stranahan's, but its incredibly well made and tasty. I was excited about Stranahan's before as I've read good things, but tasting is really believing. They've created a unique new style of American whiskey, and I for one take my hat off to them. This bottle may not make it to the OBG tasting... Good thing its available in Oregon already.

I can't find Stranahans in the OLCC listing; do you know of a liquor store that stocks it?

And I think you were interested in the Rittenhouse BIB Jeff Morgenthaler is using in his Manhattans. You can get it at the Sellwood liquor store; he buys it for a local customer, and it's the only store in Portland that carries it, I'm pretty sure.
