Friday Feeling #6


Delmonico No. 1

3/4 shot London dry gin
1/2 shot cognac
1/2 shot French vermouth
1/2 shot Italian vermouth
2 dashes Angostura bitters

This venerable cocktail was a signature feature of the menu at the Delmonico in New York, way back when before Prohibition had a stranglehold on American society. Shake well in a chilled shaker full of cracked ice, and then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a twist of orange peel.
