El Morocco

Today we share with you the “El Morocco” a cocktail that surfaced in the 1939 publication of Around the World with Jigger, Beaker and Flask, by Charles Baker. The drink is an interesting blend of Cognac, Port and pineapple juice embellished a touch of Curacao, grenadine and lime. We mixed this up following his recipe and found the results to be a quite pleasant balance of strong and fruity. As the weather cools this is a recipe that serves as a great cross-over cocktail between the summer and fall seasons. Cheers!
