The Liquid Propaganda
This week back in 1949, an American judge sentenced Mildred Gillars - better known as “Axis Sally” - to prison. Learn about the All-American gal who became the seductive voice of German propaganda during WWII… then take a swig of bitter drink with a deceptively sweet surface:
THE LIQUID PROPAGANDA, as ginned up by Matt McGrath at MOUTON in Columbus, OH, Mildred’s hometown in her later years.
Sugar the rim of a cocktail glass — an homage to Miss Gillars’ voice — and set aside.
Add to shaker over ice:
- 1 1/2 oz Plymouth gin
- 3/4 oz lemon juice
- 1/4 oz Luxardo
Shake and strain into sugared glass. Then sink to the bottom of the glass:
- 1/4-1/2 oz. Campari
…creating some dark bitterness below the surface. Drink, watching your tablemates very closely.
