June 19, 2014 – The Republic Steakhouse
Income Tax Cocktail
3/4 oz. orange juice
3/4 oz. dry vermouth
3/4 oz. vermouth rosso
3/4 oz. gin
Dash Angostura bitters
Shake well over ice in a shaker. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Bombay gin, Dolin dry vermouth, and Carpano Antica vermouth rosso. A very pleasant drink. I’d put this into a category I’ve come to think of as “garden party drinks”. It’s refreshing, not too strong, and looks fancy. Gin and orange juice always play nice together, and the dry and sweet vermouth bring their usual herbal/fruity flavors. The juniper in the gin is detectable, but not overpowering.
