Monkey Gland Cocktail Recipe

MONKEY GLAND COCKTAIL Recipe

The Monkey Gland is a cocktail of gin, orange juice, grenadine and absinthe.

He first performed testicular transplants on animals, taking the testicles from young animals and implanting these older animals. Voronoff allegedly observed increases in vitality that encouraged him to apply this method to humans. Since the 1920s, and thus at the time when the Monkey Gland was born, he had transplanted monkey testicles into the scrotum of people who believed that the method would rejuvenate them.

  • 50 ml/ 1 ½ oz. Gin
