A centuries-old drink gets a modern twist.
Mentioned in Shakespeare and Dickens, the original English purl was wormwood-infused, mulled ale with gin, sugar and spices. This warming winter beverage was commonly sold on the streets of London and is currently en vogue again at a couple of trendy cocktail bars.
We found the recipe in a second-hand, out-of-print cookbook (yes, we collect things), and breathed new life into it to make a very modern-day martini. The result: a cocktail that's extremely refreshing, and slightly bitter with fruity hints of sweetness.
