I like that the most tropical thing about this drink is the relaxed recipe. You can use two ounces of dry vermouth, but use three if you feel like it. I mean, what difference does it make when you are having a dry gin drink in Tanzania? I really like how the cocktail has a lot of grape flavor from so much vermouth. It's like the lemon juice, gin and bitters are all additional flavoring for the wine in a very wine-heavy drink.
  • 2 or 3 ounces of dry vermouth
  • 1 oz. gin
  • 3/4 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup or to taste
  • several dashes of bitters (use a little or a lot. Or none at all. It's up to you. Whatever.)
  • lemon twist
Combine all ingredients except lemon twist in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon.
