To continue our countdown to Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, this week’s treat is the Fifth Avenue. We revived this recipe from The Savoy Cocktail Book, a 1930 staple for any vibrant American witch or wizard’s potion cupboard.
“A complete, and absolutely complete book on Drinks and Drinking, Cocktails and Wines, has simply GOT to be written. Nearly all the kind friends in the world are going to read it through— they may prevent it from being too dull.” —Harry Craddock
Ingredients: 3 Ounces Creme de Cacao 3 Ounces Apricot Brandy 3 Ounces Sweet Cream Potion-Making:
Pour creme de cacao into the bottom of the glass. Pour apricot brandy slowly over spoon to layer it on top of the first liquid. Repeat the process with the sweet cream.
If your layering turns out more like stalactites and stalagmites like ours, don’t worry, it will still taste delicious!
