TUXEDO COCKTAIL NO 2


This cocktail is basically a dry martini dressed up with the addition of maraschino liqueur and absinthe. A smart suit or dress can change the way we think of a person, and in that same way, those minor additions shift the cocktail toward elegant.


Taken from The Official Downton Abbey Cocktail Book by Annie Gray, with foreword by Julian Fellowes. Published by White Lion publishing at £14.99. The Downton Abbey movie is now screening at cinemas across the UK.


INGREDIENTS: 45ml Old Tom gin, 30ml dry vermouth, 1/2 barspoon maraschino liqueur, 1/4 barspoon absinthe, 2 dashes orange bitters, cherry and lemon twist, for garnish.


METHOD:


Combine the gin, vermouth, maraschino liqueur, absinthe, and bitters in a mixing glass filled with ice and stir until well chilled, 20–30 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass or coupe. Garnish with the cherry, putting it directly into the glass, and then express the lemon zest over the drink and drop it into the glass.


LIBATION NOTE: The small amount of absinthe makes a surprising difference to the flavour of the cocktail. Add a little more than the couple of dashes called for and the drink will take on a strong black liquorice taste that will throw the drink off balance.
