Sugar Free Gazette Cocktail

The Sugar Free Gazette Cocktail was adapted from one of our favorite reference sources, the Savoy Cocktail Book.  This cocktail has some wonderful herby notes from the Sweet Vermouth and accented by the warm flavors of cognac.  The lemon citrus sets it off very nicely by enhancing some of the flavor profiles already present.

Sugar Free Curacao Punch

The Sugar Free Curacao Punch is another great recipe adapted from Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails, by Dr. Cocktail (Ted Haigh).  However, this drink was originally published in 1882 by Harry Johnson’s New and Improved Bartender’s Manual.

This cocktail was immediately described as tasting like vacation.  With the lemon citrus added to the brandy and rum, this drink had so many levels of flavor.  And the bubbles from the soda water really made the drink come alive.  We used Schweppe’s Club Soda, but I’d be very interested to try it with a home carbonation system.
