Recipe:

  • 5 oz Noilly Prat dry vermouth
  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1 dash orange bitters
  • Complete this cocktail with an olive

Preparation: Build ingredients in a mixing glass, top with cubed ice and stir. Fine strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Always garnish with the peel of a lemon. If you’re using a knife, cut off the white pith as it creates unwanted bitterness in the drink. The citrus oils found in the lemon bring out the lemon notes in the flavor profile of high quality vodka.
