1 ½ oz. gin (Bombay Sapphire)
¾ oz. orange juice
¼ oz. sweet vermouth (Punt E Mes)
1-2 dashes of Angostura bitters (Rituals DIY House Bitters)
Combine with ice; shake. Strain, add ice, top with a cherry!
This sometimes seems to be referred to as an Abbey Martini; it’s also related to the Bronx cocktail, but without dry vermouth and adding angostura bitters. From mixedcocktails.com: “An ideal brunch time beverage, the ABBEY COCKTAIL is a refreshing gin based drink that mixes bitters with vermouth.” Man, we feel refreshed already. Bring on the ABBEY COCKTAIL.
Brian: “This is still gin and juice, but with some vermouth in it.
Eric: “This is better because of the Punt e Mes, but it’s still shit.”
Brian: “I don’t know. If somebody bought me this drink in a bar I guess I would drink it.”
Eric: “I vow never try to make this drink on purpose.”
