Although not one of the most insanely great cocktails I have ever tasted, the Twentieth Century cocktail is by no means a loser. I mean, any time I can get my lips on, near, or around chocolate I am a happy person. By way of Crème de Cacao, this cocktail gives the slightest hint of chocolate. If you are wondering how chocolate and lemon are supposed to taste good – well…give this one a shot. Another of the gin-based cocktails, this is another great place to start for people who typically shy away from gin. I consider this a more medium-bodied cocktail in that it is not as heavy as some others, but it is not light either. Maybe it will just be up to you to decide whether or not you want to head in this direction. Let me know what you think if you do…
2 oz. Gin
3/4 oz. Lillet Blanc
3/4 oz. Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
1/2 oz. Crème de Cacao (white)
1. Add all ingredients to ice-filled cocktail shaker.
2. Shake vigorously for about 20-seconds.
3. Strain into cocktail glass.
4. Garnish with lemon twist.
