Jack Rabbit Cocktail

Springtime means Easter and that equals peeps and bunnies! Let’s raise a glass to celebrate the season with the Jack Rabbit cocktail. I found this gem in my copy of Old Mr. Boston Bartenders guide from 1935.  It includes gin, vermouth, apricot and Cointreau when combined, makes my mouth water just thinking about it!  This is a great drink to offer your guest for Easter or Passover.

God bless and cheers,Jack Rabbit Cocktail
