A blend of gin, Calvados, absinthe and grenadine. Aged for at least six weeks.
Flavour profile very pleasant on the tongue. The Dempsey is sweet and sour with a hint of aniseed from the absinthe.
Born in 1921 in honour of Jack Dempsey’s epic title defence against Georges Carpentier, marking boxing’s first million-dollar gate. This drink went on to survive prohibition and eventually became the signature drink at Jack’s legendary Broadway restaurant Dempsey’s.
Stir over ice and then strain into a cocktail glass – a coupe or a Nick and Nora is ideal. Garnish with a cherry.
