If you are lucky enough to be at Glorious Goodwood this summer (30th July – 3rd August), you will probably come across the tic-tac men shouting “Burlington Bertie, one hundred to thirty!” The tic-tac is the bookmakers language of choice when it comes to busy race meets when colleagues may be some distance away. They communicate via a secret sign language and they always make sure their hands can be seen in bright white gloves.
To celebrate this ancient tradition, ‘Best Barman in the World’ – Erik Lorincz, Head Barman at the American Bar at The Savoy London, has created a cocktail that will make sure that you always get the best odds.
- 45ml Vodka
- 15ml Evangelista Ratafia Liqueur
- 30ml Lemon juice
- 15ml Sugar Syrup
- 3 drops of Absinthe
- Dash of egg white
Pour all the ingredients together in a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes and give it a good shake. Once completed, strain and pour into a coupette or martini glass, garnishing with a few petals of dried lavender. Chin chin!
Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has teamed up with Goodwood Racecourse as a key sponsor for the 2013 racing season.
