Pall Mall

This drink is strangely named after the old cigarette brand with the same name. It is a Martini variation that ups the herbal flavors of gin and vermouth with orange bitters and mint liquor. The recipe calls for white creme de menthe, but I can only find peppermint schnapps, a fair substitute when it is used in so little proportion. A good creme de menthe is wonderful in large amounts, and peppermint schnapps tends to taste too much like candy cane.

Green Hat gin is a local prohibition style gin in D.C. It is a good ingredient for a cocktail that has that wet, funky, prohibition style flavor.
  • 2 oz. gin (Green Hat used)
  • 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
  • 1 tsp. creme de menthe (peppermint schnapps used)
  • dash orange bitters
 Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
