Genoa (Second Attempt)

With the proper ingredients and no mistakes, the Genoa is a solid and flavorful before-dinner drink. The flavors of liquorish, olive brine, juniper, and wine went very well together without any one taking over. That's because the amount of Sambuca was minimal compared to the rest of the ingredients. Watch out for this drink. All together it packs a huge alcoholic punch. I was like, "that bus is about to crash into my glass!"
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 1/2 oz. grappa
  • 1/2 oz. Sambuca
  • 1/2 tsp. dry vermouth
  • olive
Combine all ingredients except olive in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with olive
