Featuring Luxardo London Dry Gin, Luxardo Apricot Albicocca and Calvados in equal parts, the Angel Face is old-fashioned in a way that intrigues modern palates, as it manages to find a beautiful balance without two mainstays of modern mixology, sugar and citrus.


1 oz. Luxardo London Dry Gin

1 oz. Luxardo Apricot Albicocca Liqueur

1 oz. Calvados

Lemon twist for garnish


Step 1

Stir all ingredients with wet ice (the extra dilution helps to mellow out the bold flavors — as an alternative, the cocktail may be shaken, but will lose its beautifully clear look).

Step 2

Strain into a coupe glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.

Luxardo London Dry Gin

Luxardo Apricot Liqueur

                  ix up an Angel Face for a taste of    

                  quintessential Speakeasy style. This

                  elegant cocktail first appeared in Harry Craddock’s 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book — at the height of Prohibition — and its sumptuous flavors recall hidden parlors and smoke-filled jazz lounges. 


Inspired by Angel Face, an infamous gangster of the American Prohibition, its name belies a hidden boldness: the first sip is delicious and inviting, balancing sweet apricot with dry gin. But don’t let its smooth, heavenly flavors fool you — the Angel Face blends three full-strength spirits for a roaring
30s-style punch.
