About this Cocktail

I recently picked up a bottle of Tempus Fugit's crème de cacao and was blown away by the taste. To try it out I made a Twentieth Century cocktail. I had three versions to chose from -- Ted Haigh's Vintage Spirits, Dale DeGroff's Craft of the Cocktail, and the bottle itself. Eventually I decided on the recipe below. I used St George's Terroir gin, and Lillet Blanc for the Kina Lillet. This drink is phenomenal with the Tempus Fugit crème de cacao.

  • 1.5 oz dry gin
  • 3/4 oz Kina Lillet
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz crème de cacao

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

    If you haven't yet, you should also try swapping out the Lillet with Tempus Fugit's Kina. Will up the quality of the drink quite a bit. Cheers!
