Casino

October 16, 2014 – The Republic Steakhouse

Casino 
1 1/2 oz. gin
Dashes lemon juice
Dash maraschino liqueur
Dash orange bitters

Stir well with ice in a mixing glass. Strain into a chilled martini glass.

Plymouth original gin, Luxardo maraschino liqueur. A gin-lover’s gin cocktail. The gin was very much the star in this, so I would certainly recommend a Casino as an alternative to a standard martini. The lemon juice lent a slight citrus tartness that played will with the piney gin. The bitters come in way late on the tongue, but when they do, they are very nice. I must have been harboring a sweet tooth this evening, as again I thought this could use a bit more sweetness. Overall, this cocktail is a good sipper.
