This time I am going to delve into the depths of unknown classics...
I first heard of this drink from an article on the Michael Dietsch's site "A Dash of Bitters" although it seems to be another Ted Haigh a.k.a. "Dr Cocktail" discovery. It is a fantastically simple drink, with an orange, bitter twist. However, I cant seem to find it published anywhere so if anybody happens to know when, where and how etc...then share the knowledge!
Otherwise, just blow the dust off that bottle of Benedictine and "Dash Away!"
- 1 oz. gin
- 1 oz. dry vermouth
- 3 dashes Benedictine
- 3 dashes orange bitters
- Orange twist, for garnish
Stir over Ice in a mixing glass then "Strain & Serve" into a chilled cocktail glass! Garnish...Drink...
