A nice look at one of the oldies but goodies.
After the last couple of fruity drinks I wanted to try an old fashioned, or at least, an old fashioned style drink. In the afternoon I stumbled over Jim Romdall´s (Seattle) recipe for the 5th Avenue Cocktail with Lemon and Celery Bitters! And I knew this is the right drink for tonight. And here it is!
25ml Dolin Bianco Vermouth
1 barspoon yellow Chartreuse
1 dash Absinthe
3 dashes The Bitter Truth Lemon Bitters
2 dashes The Bitter Truth Celery Bitters
1 Lemon Twist for garnish
Stir all ingredients with ice in a mixing glass and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with the lemon twist.
