Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire were two of the most iconic dancers of the 1930's. Although they exuded romance while dancing on the silver screen, off-screen there was no love lost due to comparisons between the pair and who was the stronger performer.
Ginger particularly liked the infamous cartoon caption that she "did everything Astaire did, except in heels and backwards". We'd also like to point out that Fred Astaire never had a cocktail named after him like Rogers did - and it's delicious!
30ml dry gin
30ml dry vermouth
30ml apricot brandy
4 dashes of lemon juice
1. Mix all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously.
2. Serve in a coupe glass with thin slices of apple.
