Cats-Eye Cocktail (6 people)

1/2 Glass Fresh Lemonade (1/4 oz Lemon Juice, 1/2 teaspoon sugar)
1/2 Glass Water (1/4 oz water)
2 Glasses Gin (1 oz Boodles Gin)
1 Dessertspoonful Kirsch (Dash Trimbach Kirsch)
1/2 Glass Cointreau (1/4 oz Cointreau)
Not quite 2 Glasses French Vermouth (Not quite 1 oz Noilly Prat Dry)

Shake well and strain into cocktail glasses. Serve with an olive.

Skipped the olive.

A tasty cocktail. A bit like an Aviation crossed with a Martini. Certainly something worthwhile to try, if you enjoy those sorts of sweet tart flavors.

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.
