Fog Cutter Cocktail

Fog Cutter cocktail has been invented by Victor ‘Trader Vic’ Bergeron on the Forbidden Island. Recently it’s been given a new life by Martin Cate which is the current owner of Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge in Almeda, California. Furthermore, Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge has been enjoying a constantly growing popularity. Fog Cutter is a delicate, fruity combination of different spirits and juices. It’s a mix of orange juice, lemon juice, brandy and gin.

Usually, according to the tradition, it’s topped with an aromatic float of sherry. However, you can add syrups if you want to make your drink more personalized. However, be careful when preparing it at home, it does pack a punch. After two, you won’t even see the stuff – as Vic wrote of his creation.
