Dream Cocktail – Original Savoy 1930s Recipe

Dream Cocktail
Dream Cocktail

This is simply an awesome cocktail from The Savoy Cocktail Book, it’s good but its strong. This maybe one you have to have after you are already a little buzzed. Not much else to add so I will give a general history of the American Bar at the Savoy Hotel. First published in The Savoy Cocktail Book by Harry Craddock, this little gem was one of the many great cocktails coming out of London in the 1920s and 30s. For obvious reasons, most of the great cocktails invented during the American Alcohol Prohibition (1920-1933) came from Europe. Many bartenders who wanted to keep mixing moved to either the UK or France and started working at American style cocktail bars. Harry Craddock was born in England but moved to America in 1897 to practice bartending. In 1920 he moved back to England and began working at The American Bar inside the Savoy Hotel, where he is credited with inventing some of the world’s most famous cocktails. Established in 1893, The American Bar is the bar credited with bringing the American style saloon/cocktail bar to Europe.
