Dashes of apricot brandy
Shake in a shaker with ice. Strain into a martini glass.
Plymouth Navy Strength gin, DeKuyper apricot-flavored brandy. This is rather good! Nicely balanced, not too much of any one thing, although I’m not sure the long-awaited apricot brandy contributes much. This cocktail comes off as a softer martini.
