San Francisco

What is it about San Francisco that inspires funky ingredients in cocktails. There's the S.F. Sour  (A.K.A. Frisco Sour) with Benedictine and grenadine, the Golden Gate with rum, gin and orgeat syrup, and San Franciscans' love of Frenet Branca served chilled and neat. You can really tell a west-coaster by their drink order. This cocktail implies that San Franciscans love their vermouth, and they probably do for all that. This cocktail has heaping equal parts of dry and sweet vermouth and gin. I used both Lacuesta blanco and limited edition vermouths. All the bitters really make this dry-ish and sweet-ish cocktail very herbaceous and interesting.
  • 1 1/2 oz. sloe gin
  • 1 1/2 oz. dry vermouth 
  • 1 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 3-5 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 3-5 dashes orange bitters
  • maraschino cherry
Combine all ingredients except cherry in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
