Recipes/The Monkey Gland
- KCTS 9 Prohibition Cocktail
Presented by: Chip, Merchants Cafe in Seattle
The Monkey Gland was created by Harry MacElhone, the owner of Harry’s New York Bar in Paris and is also known as the McCormick. The drink was named after the surgical procedure of grafting monkey testicle tissue to humans as a practice intended to produce a longer and healthier life. The original recipe used absinthe but due to lack of availability, pastis or Benedictine was often substituted.
- 2 oz gin
- 1 1/2 oz orange juice
- 2 dashes grenadine
- 2 dashes absinthe substitute (Pernod or Benedictine)
- orange peel for garnish
Shake with ice and strain into glass adding peel.
