Gin Cocktail

Gin Cocktail

4 Dashes Orange Bitters. (1 tsp. Amaro CioCiara, dash Regan’s Orange)
1 Glass Dry Gin. (1 1/2 oz Mystery Gin, 1/2 oz Beefeater’s Gin)

Shake (stir, please) well and strain into cocktail glass. (Orange twist.)

I figured with 4 whole dashes of orange bitters here, it might be fun to use the Amer Picon-like CioCiara instead of regular orange bitters.

I found a small mystery bottle of something in my cabinet. Smells like gin. In fact, I suspect it might very well have been a sample of Hayman’s Old-Tom.

In any case, it seemed like it would be interesting in this cocktail, even though it is probably not a “Dry Gin,” and I didn’t have enough to make a whole 2 ounces.

Another cocktail needing a good long stir…

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.
