Imbibing Mr. Boston: Alfie Cocktail


Another cocktail I’d not had until I started this project.  A simple drink, but one that has a great flavor.  The pineapple juice, of course, makes for a foamy top.  I would have liked some kind of garnish.  Perhaps a few orange pop rocks?  In any case, I know nothing about the origin of this drink.  Perhaps it was inspired by the 1965 Burt Bacharach and Hal David song (see below).

1.5 oz lemon vodka
0.75 oz pineapple juice
0.5 oz triple sec

Shake with ice and strain into chilled cocktail glass.
