Income Tax Cocktail
1 Dash Angostura Bitters.
The Juice of 1/4 Orange. (1/4 quarter valencia orange squeezed right over the tin)
1/4 French Vermouth. (3/4 oz Dolin Dry Vermouth)
1/4 Italian Vermouth. (3/4 oz Carpano Antica Vermouth)
1/2 Dry Gin. (1 1/2 oz Broker’s Dry Gin)
Shake (haha, stir!) well and strain into cocktail glass. (Orange Peel.)
I know I sometimes bang on about the Bronx variations as the cocktails in the Savoy which I am most tired of. But this was really good. A nice stiff gin, a beautiful fresh valencia orange, generous portion of bitters, newly opened bottles of dry and sweet vermouth.
When this cocktail is good, it is hard to beat!
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.
