My dear readers! My blog has birthday today :) Three years ago I registered this domain and start blogging here. And than we may drink for this! I propose to drink one rare old-school cocktail – the Three Miller Cocktail.
In my mind the name of this cocktail strongly connected to Prohibition and bootlegers. You may read some interesting facts about this cocktail (and it original name – The Three Mile Limit) at Esquire Drink Database or The Underhill Lounge Blog.
I use recipe from one of my favorite cocktail book – Cocktails and Mixed Drinks by Anthony Hogg (but in this book this cocktail has name – Three Miler):
40 ml brandy (cognac)
20 ml white rum
1 dash fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. grenadine
Shake all ingredients in a shaker with a lot of ice. Strain into cocktail glass.
I use both of my new bottle of cognac – HENNESSY VS and VSOP. As white rum I use Bacardi Cartablanca (particularly this rum is recommended by Harry Craddock).
First cocktail with HENNESSY VS has so sweet and strong taste with interesting cognac palate and short and pleasant aftertaste with notes of wood. It is good evening cocktail. But with HENNESSY VSOP Cognak this cocktail is awesome. It has rich and complex taste with great palate and long smooth aftertaste.
