The Cocktails

Here are a collection of cocktails that I have gathered. In selecting these recipes my focus has been on quality instead of quantity, and so hopefully each of the drinks below should be ones which reflect the culinary potential that I feel the cocktail contains.

You will notice that many of the recipes will be listed in italic, this indicates that I have recorded an episode of The Cocktail Spirit in which I prepare this particular drink. You will find a link to that episode provided below the listing of the recipe.


Found in the Savoy Cocktail Book by Harry Craddock, this drink is quite similar to that of the Martinez, although many Martinez recipes will specifically call for Old Tom gin, and/or the use of Marachino liqueur. It’s hard to say where this drink originates, or exactly what is intended by its name, but “Hakam” means “A Wise Man” in Hebrew.

1 1/2 ounces gin
1 1/2 ounces sweet vermouth
2 dashes orange curaçao
1 dash orange bitters
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
Please remember to drink safely and responsibly.
