The Spencer is a forgotten gem from the pages of Harry Craddock’s The Savoy Cocktail Book. It’s a small, strong cocktail that should be served in a cold, small glass.
Much of the flavor comes from the apricot brandy, so be sure to use a good one. We like the ones from Luxardo, Marie Brizard, or Giffard.
Stir all ingredients with ice until very cold. Strain into a small chilled cocktail glass.
