Knickerbocker Cocktail

Knickerbocker cocktails are Martini variations that supposedly came from the Knickerbocker Hotel in New York. Not sure if this hotel still stands, nor its relation to Washington Irving, but it is pretty much a Perfect Martini that is a little lopsided toward dry vermouth and stirred. Common Wealth gin gives this drink a wet and whisky-like base from which to enjoy the Dolin vermouths.
  • 2 oz. gin (Common Wealth used)
  • 1 oz. dry vermouth (Mancino used)
  • 1/2 tsp. sweet vermouth (Dolin used)
  • lemon twist
Stir all ingredients except lemon twist in a mixing glass full of ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon twist.
