We got this recipe for a classic cocktail, The Delilah, from Emmett Davenport and Lady Attercrop, hosts of the long-running music podcast, “The Clockwork Cabaret.”

This recipe came from their Lushington’s Lounge videos where they explore a “classic” Victorian cocktail and a modern reinterpretation …with puppets. You have to watch it to fully appreciate it: http://steampunkafterdark.wix.com/lushingtonslounge.

The Delilah

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.

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.
