1 Dash Orange Bitters. (Regan’s)
2/3 Gin (1 1/2 oz Beefeater’s Gin)
1/3 French Vermouth. (3/4 oz Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth)
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass. Serve with stuffed olive.
Yer basic Dry Martini. Get used to it, there are about a million of these in the Savoy Cocktail Book. Interesting to note that the Astoria Cocktail in Crockett’s “Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book” is composed of, 2/3 dry vermouth, 1/3 Old Tom Gin, and 2 Dashes of Orange Bitters. Guess it lost some weight crossing the Atlantic!
This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
