Savoy Cocktail of the Week: The Froupe


The Froupe cocktail was a quite delicious mix of brandy, sweet vermouth and Bénédictine. One taster described it as a “lovely, refreshing kind of garden party cocktail.”

It was surprisingly refreshing.

I happened to serve the Froupe on a grossly hot 90+ degree day out on the patio and despite being comprised of what seem like somewhat heavy ingredients… it worked. Kept nice and cold, the Froupe’s gentle, spiciness made me think of ginger bread or ginger snaps or some such thing. I wished I had a slice of cheesecake perhaps to pair it with after rather than before dinner.

It was such a nice cocktail that it did not even have time to get warm before I finished mine. Definitely would be a nice after dinner cocktail, alone or with a bit of dessert.

By the way, if I had not known what went into the Froupe, I might have pegged it as a sherry cocktail at first sip.

Onwards.

Next week, we tackle the letter G.
