Calvados Cocktail

29 May 2011

A bunch of orange stuff.

The Calvados cocktail is really more the “orange cocktail with Calvados.” Or something like that. But three orange ingredients and one apple brandy does not an apple brandy cocktail make! That’s my thesis, at least. In practice, this cocktail requires an absurd amount of orange bitters. As a result, the cocktail tastes like the peel of a bitter orange. It’s not really pleasant after a few sips.

Orange you glad I made this?

It was one of the first cocktails in a long time I couldn’t even bring myself to finish.
