Despite the snowfall today (April 6th), it is time to jump start Spring with a refreshing and fruity cocktail that just oozes sunshine!

The Spencer Cocktail is originally from Harry Craddock’s The Savoy Cocktail Book, which is one of the definitive cocktail collections from the 1930’s.

The cocktail is well-balanced with a charmingly fruity personality, perfect to welcome Spring.

I present the Spencer Cocktail…

2oz. London Dry Gin

1oz. Apricot Liqueur

1/4oz. Orange Juice

Dash of bitters (Orange was my preference)

Shake with crushed ice and strain into a coupe. Garnish with a cherry.
