About this Cocktail

Invented by Lauren Clark and Misty Kalkofen for a roaring twenties party at the Boston Athenaeum, one of the oldest libraries in the USA. Named after the mixture of SC6000 and ethanol used by conservators to consolidate old leather, this cocktail is far more pleasant in aroma and, presumably, taste.

  • 1.5 oz London dry gin
  • .5 oz St. Germain
  • .5 oz Cherry Heering
  • .5 oz lemon juice
  • 2 dashes Peychaud's Bitters

Shake vigorously over ice and strain into a champagne saucer or cocktail glass.

    This is amazing. Great story for a cocktail name.

    I used Hendrick’s, St. Elder, Luxardo, and lemon juice. It came out light pink. Really good. Lightly sweet, tart, and a little bitterness on the aftertaste.
