Millionaire

Millionaire cocktail with rum and sloe gin

There are many different versions of this recipe floating around, but our favorite version comes from Ted “Dr. Cocktail” Haigh. Don’t risk the incredible beauty and complexity of this drink on cut-rate fruit liqueurs. The most common, easy-to-find varieties of sloe gin and apricot liqueur are unfortunately also usually artificially-flavored, often with a corn syrup base. Real sloe gin (we like Plymouth) and apricot liqueur that’s actually made with apricots are what this drink deserves. After all, it is called a “Millionaire” – you’re more or less obligated to use the good stuff.
