Vintage Cocktails #69: The Pendennis Cocktail

Named after the club of the same name in Louisville, Kentucky, 1881, this cocktail is one that can brighten your day. A tantalizing blend of gin, apricot brandy, bitters and lime; this drink has layers of complexity while still remaining bright. No one flavor emerges as the clear leader, but instead they all sit together in a harmonious balance. Cheers!
