Alfonso Special

I remained on a cognac kick the other night and made the Alfonso Special, a rich and liqueur-heavy cocktail that was very pleasing and good for slow sipping. Bitters and a quality sweet vermouth make it even more interesting. Try this if you have a craving for Grand Marnier.
  • 1 1/2 oz. Grand Marnier
  • 3/4 oz dry gin
  • 1 tsp. dry vermouth
  • 1 tsp. sweet vermouth
  • several dashes of Angostura bitters
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
