Squid Mixes: Tuxedo Cocktail
The tuxedo, pictured here on the railing of our newly completed deck, tastes a lot like last week's cocktail, the casino. However, it uses dry vermouth instead of lemon juice. It's nice.
My recipe - gin, dry vermouth, Maraschino liqueur, orange bitters, garnish with a cherry - comes from The New York Bartender's Guide. Interestingly, the official IBA recipe adds absinthe. I have never had absinthe. Until 2007, it was illegal in the United States and is still heavily regulated.
