The Quaker Cocktail

Quakers are not known for their cocktails, they tend to be more microbeer kind of people, so I am assuming that this cocktail was named after a location rather than after the Religious Society of Friends. This is a classic cocktail was found in The Savoy Cocktail Book, first published in 1930 in London, as well as in many others of the time. One item that this recipe calls for is raspberry syrup and while researching this recipe I came across instructions for making your own raspberry syrup. Well it just so happens that raspberries are in season and I’m feeling ambitious so I decided to give it a go. You will have to wait for Episode 32 to hear how it turned out. In the mean time here is the recipe so you can make your own and play along at home.

The Quaker Cocktail

3/4 oz Light Rum
3/4 oz Brandy
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice (or about 1/4 a lemon)
1/2 oz raspberry syrup

Pour all ingredients over ice, shake well and strain into a cocktail glass

This recipe also works well with Grenadine in a pinch. In fact, the cocktail in the picture was made with Grenadine so that I could publish this before the syrup was done so if you do use raspberry syrup it won’t be this pink. And in case you are a visual learner, here is a video on how to make it as well.
