Straight Law Cocktail
1/3 Dry Gin. (3/4 oz Hayman’s Old Tom Gin)
2/3 Dry Sherry. (1 1/2 oz Dry Sack Sherry)
Shake well (I stirred, briefly) and strain into cocktail glass. (Orange Peel.)
Trying to think of something interesting to do with this sort of reverse sherry Martini, I thought it might be fun to use the botanically intense Hayman’s in the cocktail.
It turned out interesting, but it really isn’t anything to write home about. An enjoyable, light appetizer and that’s about it. Sherry with a “stick”, if you will.
Such a good name, though. Really do wish it belonged to a better cocktail.
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.
