Invented on a whim, surprisingly delicious! What more can you ask for?
1 oz London Dry gin (again, the lovely Boodles)
1/2 oz Noilly Prat dry vermouth
1/2 oz chai-infused red vermouth (this one, you must make... I like the recipe from Speakeasy)
1/2 oz Tuaca
1 oz Prometheus Springs Spicy Pear Elixir (I found this at my local co-op... yum)
1 dash demerara simple syrup
1 dash orange bitters
Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass; garnish with an orange wheel.
Spices from all over the spectrum in this one, from the bright juniper notes of gin to dark cardamom and black pepper. Just the right amount of sweetness and a touch of lingering spice. I would be proud to serve this anywhere I go.
