The Savoy Cocktail Book contains all the recipes Harry Craddock made famous during his time at the famous London hotel, and is beloved by many a bartender. If you don’t own a copy, I highly recommend you buy one.
I was looking for a cool, refreshing cocktail to quench and revive, and Harry’s Bull-Dog Cocktail hits the spot and best of all the ingredients are readily available and it’s very easy to make.
The drink is sweet, but not overly so, as the ginger ale tones down the citrus. I made it with Melbourne Gin Company Gin and it was the perfect choice!
Ingredients for the Bull-Dog Cocktail
1 orange freshly squeezed (reserve a sliver of peel for garnish)
Ginger Ale (I used Fever-tree as they recently gifted me a set of mixers and I needed an excuse to try their Ginger Ale!)
Place a large ice-cube or two into a rocks glass.
Add the freshly squeezed orange juice and the gin.
Top up with ginger ale and stir gently.
Add garnish and enjoy!
