Today we explore one interesting old cocktail with my favorite autumn spirit – gin. This cocktail has two similar name – Bermudiana Rose (in English cocktail books like Cafe Royal Cocktail Book by W.J. Tarling, 1937 or Cocktails and Mixed Drinks by Anthony Hogg, 1979) or Bermuda Rose (in American cocktail books like The Craft of the Cocktail by Dale DeGroff, 2002).
At the heart of the Bermudiana Rose Cocktail are classic composition of gin and apricot brandy. Actually apricot brandy is not a brandy, it is so sweet apricot flavored liqueur. The composition of gin and apricot brandy we can found in some famous London Cocktail like Paradise, Claridge orGolden Dawn.
