Cocktail of the Week: Bebbo

14 Apr

Just bought the excellent Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails: From the Alamagoozlum to the Zombie 100 Rediscovered Recipes and the Stories Behind Them by Ted Haigh. It includes a great history of cocktails in the U.S. as well as some great recipes.

I decided to try the Bebbo Cocktail since I already had the ingredients on hand.  It was tangy, refreshing, and simple.


1.5 oz gin

1 oz fresh lemon juice

1/2 honey

2 tsp. OJ

Stir all the ingredients together in the cocktail shaker until the honey disolves.  Add ice, shake, and strain into a cocktail glass.
