Saratoga Cocktail 25 Jul 2011
3:46 pm

I found this recipe of the saratoga in an old german cocktail book from 1925. I think it’s very interesting because its not the same cocktail as in Jerry Thomas his book. It’s the first time I seen this recipe, but i have found it online.

2 dashes Angostura-bitters
2 dashes Maraschino
2 tablespoons pineapple syrup
1 1/2 oz Cognac
Shake and strain in a champagne glas and add a lemon wheel and a dash of champagne.

You can read the book here :
(It’s on page 38)

Have you ever seen a recipe like this?

I wrote the wrong measurement for the pineapple syrup. It should be 2 teaspoons and not tablespoons.
