The Delilah

From Emmett Davenport and Lady Attercrop, hosts of the long-running music podcast, The Clockwork Cabaret. They also produce the Lushington’s Lounge videos where the pair  explores a “classic” Victorian cocktail and a modern reinterpretation…with puppets. You have to watch it to fully appreciate it: http://steampunkafterdark.wix.com/lushingtonslounge
2 ounces gin, such as Uncle Val’s, Hendrick’s or Citadel
1 ounce orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
Maraschino cherry or lemon slice as garnish
Pour gin, liqueur and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes.
Shake well.
Strain into cocktail glass.
Garnish with cherry or lemon slice if desired.
Note: The women’s favorite variation of this drink is simply to pour all ingredients into an old-fashioned glass with ice, add 2 dashes of bitters, stir and garnish with lemon.
Yield: 1 serving.
