Carpano Antica Formula made for a very rich rendition of this cocktail named after Delmonico Steak in New York, which was a cocktail haven a century ago. It's basically a Perfect Martini with the addition of brandy, which makes it richer and more of a treat than a spicy dry drink. I was surprised how much I could taste both the grape flavor of the dry vermouth and bitter bite of the Antica vermouth.
  • 1 1/2 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. brandy
  • 1/2 dry vermouth
  • 1/2 sweet vermouth
  • 2 dashes angostura bitters
  • lemon twist
Combine all ingredients except twist in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
