The Proper Pour with Charlotte Voisey
Navy and Army Cocktail
Charlotte twists up the classic Army and Navy Cocktail which first appears in print in David Embury's The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks. Embury described it as a Gin Sour that uses orgeat instead of simple syrup. In this version, Charlotte uses Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, thus the different name.
2 parts Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
3/4 part orgeat syrup
1 part fresh lime juice
Shake with ice.
Strain into a chilled cocktail coupe.
Garnish with grated nutmeg.
