Both of this cocktail was created by Philip Duff – the ambassador of BOLS. I found this recipes on bolscocktails.com, both of them are rare possibility to use BOLS Kiwi and Bols Lychee liqueur in so average cocktail. This cocktails are not extraordinary but so interesting “for girls” drinks.
15 ml BOLS Strawberry
45 ml BOLS Kiwi
45 ml cranberry juice
Shake. Cocktail. Garnish with kiwi slice and lime slice.
15 ml BOLS Peach
45 ml BOLS Lychee
45 ml cranberry juice
Shake. Cocktail. No garnish.
Both cocktails has sweet and fruity taste. The Antipodean and Eurasian cocktails by Philip Duff is light and sweet concoction. They has one lack – they are very weak. I reccomend to add some (about 15 ml or more) premium vodka for more crisp and bright cocktail.

Recipe of Piccadilly Cocktail I found in one of my favorite cocktail book – Cocktails and Mixed Drinks by Anthony Hogg (1979). This cocktail has classic composition and contain one of my favorite herbal liqueur – Pernod. The Pernod is strong anise-flavored liqueur from France. It is common substitute of absinthe.
50 ml gin
25 ml vermouth dry
Stir. Cocktail glass.
The Piccadilly Cocktail is admirable strong drink with so dry taste and light anise flavor. This cocktail is so similar to another british cocktail – the Gloom Raiser. One of version of this cocktail was discovered by me. It is so peculiar variation of Dry Martini. Another version of Gloom Raiser Cocktail I found on CocktailDB.
45 ml gin
15 ml vermouth dry
7 ml pastis
7 ml grenadine
Stir and strain into cocktail glass.
For this cocktail I use homemade grenadine (cold process) and my new vermouth – CINZANO Extra Dry. As Michael Jackson recommend I squeeze aromatic oils from lemon peel over my Gloom Raiser. The result is perfect! The Gloom Raiser Cocktail in this proportions is amazing and awesome drink. It has so strong taste with bright anise flavor with sweet interesting palate.
