When I was last at the Pegu Club in NYC I had what I believe was called a nineteenth century. I can't seem to find a recipe for this online, but I remember that it had Lillet Rouge which made it a lovely red color. Anyone know the recipe?
Also, I want the recipe to make this at home but also thought it might be nice as the signature cocktail (we'll also have wine and beer) at for our upcoming (end of the month) wedding. Thoughts on whether this will have mass appeal? (Another drink we are considering is a dark and stormy, made with bottled--and thus less potent than homemade--ginger beer). Also any thoughts on whether it can be diluted with seltzer or something else---i dont want people getting too drunk.
But mainly I need the recipe, so please help!
