Cocktail Venus No 2: Angel's Tit by Gloria



We have featured one of Playboy's nineteen fifties cocktail recipe illustrations before but here we have another one, from the April 1954 issue by an illustrator who signs herself Gloria.   This racy angel, perched on a small cloud is to illustrate the pre-prohibition cocktail the Angel's Tit (yes, really).




It's an early layered cocktail and consists of 2/3 maraschino liqueur at he bottom of a stemmed (Playboy suggests a pony) glass.  Then pour one third double cream on the top so it floats on the maraschino.  Top with a maraschino cherry "nipple".  It sounds totally disgusting which is why these days it is also made with Dark Creme de Cacao instead.

  1. mmmm...chase that with a warm Guinness and compliment your Angel's Tit with a Devil's Orgasm -- a right lovely projectile vomit followed by a dry-heave chaser. Splendid illustration, though.
