Chelsea Bailey, Manager of the world-famous Happiness Forgets, has generously provided us with this light version of her delicate and delicious sipper. Inspired by The Claridge Cocktail, the White Orchard is a brilliant introduction to Martini style drinks.
With this classic style drink you start to get an understanding of how a little can be a lot. When making drinks like this each ingredient has the potential to make or break your drink. It’s easier to miss pour 2.5ml than it is 10ml so it might be easier to make this as a batched cocktail. Or, if you have a decent set of digital scales, put your mixing glass on the scale and build your drink by weight instead of using the measure/jigger. Malic Acid solution is made of 1g Malic Acid to 10g water, stir until the acid is dissolved.
