Moulin Rouge

Another Paris-themed cocktail, the Moulin Rouge is a tribute to the famed club beneath a red windmill. The color of the drink, which comes from sloe gin, is a slutty red, and sweet vermouth like Antica Formula makes the red deeper.

Using a bitter vermouth like Antica Formula makes sure that there is a balance to the sweet syrupy sloeberry liqueur. It was interesting and a little dastardly to drink a cocktail the color of blood.
  • 2 oz. sloe gin
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 3-5 dashes of Angostura bitters
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir until chilled and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
