May 28, 2013 (Day 19) – Fairbank Cocktail

This cocktail originally appeared in ABC of Mixing Cocktails by Harry McElhone in 1922.

  • 1.75 oz gin
  • .75 oz dry vermouth
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • 2 dashes créme de noyeaux

Stir in a mixing glass filled with ice and then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.


Gin right up front withe the creme de noyeaux adding a very pleasant bit of almond just on the end. Very classy.
