Like the Boomerang (previous entry) the Kangaroo is a Martini variation with a hefty amount of vermouth. Also like the Boomerang, there's some kind of allusion to Australia. I don't understand why. But if it looks like a kangaroo, and hops like a kangaroo, than it must be one.

This cocktail is made with vodka and a hefty dose of dry vermouth. I'm open to trying different vermouths, since the cocktail is mostly a wine drink and its flavor will be determined by the kind of vermouth you use.

Something nice about this drink is the ease with which it can be prepared. You only need three ingredients and a mixing glass.
  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 1 oz. dry vermouth
  • lemon twist
Combine vodka and vermouth in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into an Old Fashioned glass with fresh (large cube) ice. Twist lemon peel over the drink and drop it in.
