Rolls Royce Cocktail.
1 Dash Benedictine.
1/4 French Vermouth. (1/2 oz Dolin Dry Vermouth)
1/4 Italian Vermouth. (1/2 oz Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth)
1/2 Dry Gin. (1 oz Beefeater Gin)
Shake (I stirred) well and strain into cocktail glass. (Orange Peel.)
Oh sweet, delicious Carpano, how happy I am to have you back! Ahem.
Another “perfect” Martini variation, and another delicious cocktail. An Orange Peel just seemed like an interesting idea, as a counterpoint to the herbal richness of the Benedictine.
Certainly a cocktail worth playing around with. Might even be good with Genever.
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.
