George wants to postpone the wedding with Susan, Elaine is jealous at George and confides in the local Rabbi, while Kramer spills hot coffee on his lap and wants to sue the place that sold it to him.
We've been working on this one for a while. An earlier incarnation very nearly made it on the blog back when we added vermouth. We wanted something boozy and stirred, and without the benefit of a deep bar, we've often relied on citrus juices for our originals. We wanted to go in a different direction here, and it took us a while, hence the name.
Now with the addition of Maraschino, we feel that we've unlocked something. It's not unlike a Martinez, but the dry vermouth and the addition of grenadine mix things up a bit, also lessening the alcohol content while remaining a well-balanced cocktail.
What you need
- 1 oz. London dry gin
- 1 oz. dry vermouth
- 0.25 oz. grenadine
- 0.25 oz. maraschino liqueur
- 1 dash orange bitters
- brandied or maraschino cherry for garnish
How it's made
Put a cherry in the bottom of a coupe glass. Stir all the other ingredients with ice in a mixing glass, and strain into the coupe.
