September 25, 2014 – The Republic Steakhouse
3/4 oz. vermouth rosso
3/4 oz. Canadian whisky
Dash triple sec
Dashes Angostura bitters
Stir first four ingredients with ice in a mixing glass. Strain into a Champagne flute and fill with Champagne.
Pendleton Canadian whisky, Carpano Antica vermouth rosso, and Gruet Brut sparkling white wine. After the success I had with the Manhattan Dry, I thought I’d try another Canadian cocktail. The Ohio was a bit on the sweet side, but not cloyingly so, and it had the usual muskiness from the wine. The real pleasing note was, of course, the Carpano Antica, which came through very clearly. I really liked this, and will probably order it again.
