Topic: Yale Club Virtual Cocktail Party


It’s time to celebrate “back to school”, after a fashion in these COVID times! If you are looking for something to raise in your glass, try the Yale cocktail:



2 1/2 ounces gin
1 1/2 tsp dry vermouth
1 1/2 tsp blue Curacao
dash of orange bitters
Optional: a squeeze of half of a Clementine orange


  1. Chill a martini glass in the freezer or fill a cocktail glass with ice.
  2. Fill a glass or martini shaker with ice and add the ingredients.
  3. Shake or stir and strain into the chilled or ice filled glass. (In the summer, I will sometimes allow some of the ice pieces slip into the cocktail glass. Purists will object, so it’s up to you whether or not you want to let some of the ice shards into your cocktail.)
  4. Toast to back to school.

Please bring a piece of Yale memorabilia and be prepared to share a Yale story that has some significance for you. It can be funny, poignant, embarrassing or profound! We look forward to hearing your story!
