November 13, 2014 – The Republic Steakhouse
Merry Widow No. 1
3/4 oz. dry vermouth
3/4 oz. gin
Stir over ice in a mixing glass. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist lemon peel over drink and drop in.
Plymouth Navy Strength gin, Dolin dry vermouth, Mythe absinthe spritz in the glass. This was delicious! Powerful, piney, just a bit “hot” (yay for navy strength!), with sharp herbs. The absinthe did its usual thing, but the anise/licorice came through as rather fruity. The lemon peel was a lovely addition.
