Cocktail Recipe | The Journalist

The Journalist

I tried this cocktail after reading Jim Meehan's article in the NY Times. I basically followed the recipe, but double the quantities. It really is a delightful summer cocktail: tart, bright, refreshing and it allows all the components to sing their own notes while being harmonious.


Glass: Martini / Coupe
Ice: Large Cubes (for shaking)
Garnish: None


Ingredients
- 1.5 oz. Citadelle Gin
- 0.5 oz. Dry Curacao
- 0.5 oz. Dolin Dry Vermouth
- 0.5 oz. Cocchi Vermouth di Torino
- 0.5 oz. Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
- 2 dashes Angostura Bitters


Directions
1) Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker, add ice and shake vigorously.
2) Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
