Arnaud’s Special Cocktail

May 29, 2013 (Day 20) – Arnaud’s Special Cocktail

This cocktail originally appeared in Bottoms Up by Ted Saucier in 1951. 

  • 2 oz scotch
  • 1 oz Dubonnet Rouge
  • 3 dashes orange bitters

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake well. Strain into a cocktail glass, garnished with an orange twist.

Arnaud’s Special Cocktail

As Ted Haigh notes in his excellent tome Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails – one of these little ditties hasn’t been mixed up at Arnaud’s for decades.

This is a scotch cocktail for scotch drinkers. Don’t expect those uninitiated into peat to enjoy it.
