Yellow Parrot

If you don’t like aniseed, then this cocktail should be avoided! The aniseed from the absinthe is quite strong, but for those who are partial to this flavour, it should be a winner.  It’s summery in colour, sweet and complex in taste with a real kick to it; definitely a ‘marmite’ cocktail.

Whizz Bang

It is said that this cocktail was named after the high velocity bombs of WW1; all that was heard was a ‘whizz’ followed closely by a ‘bang’.  This recipe was created by Tommy Burton of the Sports’ Club, London in 1920.

Monkey Gland

Created in the 1920s by Harry MacElhone, owner of Harry′s New York Bar in Paris, the Monkey Gland is a gin-based cocktail made with orange juice, grenadine and absinthe.

Apparently, the cocktail was inspired by the experiments of Russian scientist Serge Voronoff. Long before Viagra, Voronoff was experimenting with various implants, the most famous of these was the grafting of monkey testicle tissue to human testicles. His hopes were to increase longevity, but his rather shocking technique only received considerable ridicule.

Dempsey

An unlikely mix of ingredients that actually work. Absinthe and grenadine combined with gin and Calvados; a delightfully potent cocktail that is very moreish.

Harvey Wallbanger

The Harvey Wallbanger is thought to have been invented in the 1950s but its exact origins are not clear cut and there is much speculation and disagreement amongst historians. One thing is certain, it’s a cocktail that most people will have heard of, but few will know its content.
