Total time: 3 minutes | Serves 1
  • 1 1/2 ounces Beefeater gin
  • 1 1/2 ounces Carpano Antica vermouth
  • 1/4 ounce Luxardo maraschino liqueur
  • 2 dashes Fee Bros. orange bitters
  • Orange for garnish

Step 1Add the gin, Carpano Antica, maraschino liqueur and orange bitters to a mixing glass filled with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled coupe.

Step 2To make an orange twist, use a channel or paring knife to cut a thin strip of orange peel 2 to 3 inches long. Twist the peel into a "spring" shape over the finished drink to release the oils and drop the twist into the drink.

Note: A classic cocktail; adapted from a PDT recipe. The drink at PDT is made with a dash of Regans' orange bitters and a dash of Fee Bros. orange bitters. Search online for Regans' bitters. Carpano Antica Formula sweet red vermouth is available at some specialty liquor sellers. Luxardo maraschino liqueur is available at many fine wine and liquor stores.
