Silver Cocktail

013

Silver Cocktail
2 Dashes Maraschino. (5ml Luxardo Maraschino)
2 Dashes Orange Bitters. (2 Dashes Bitter Truth Orange Bitters)
1/2 French Vermouth. (1 oz Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth)
1/2 Dry Gin. (1 oz Junipero Gin)
Shake (I stirred) well and strain into cocktail glass.

An Imperial Cocktail with Orange Bitters instead of Angostura?

Or a Fifty-Fifty with Maraschino?  A Dry Martinez?

There are all sorts of different ways to look at this cocktail, none of them particularly interesting.  What is true, is that the Silver Cocktail is delicious.  As always, I like to use a decently strong and strongly flavored gin when making Fifty-Fifty type cocktails.  If you don’t have Junipero, Tanqueray would be another good choice.

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.
