Legend tells of a meeting of the Buddah, Lao Tso, and Confucius on a mountain path. This is the sublime Rendez-Vous of British gin, German kirschwasser and Italian Campari. It's is nearly perfect, certainly legendary, and full of interesting flavor. No sugar or juice means that Campari is unchecked and kirsh adds a thick texture that's hard to ignore. If I had to change anything, I'd use more Campari--just a bit.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. kirschwasser
  • 1/2 oz. Campari
  • lemon twist
Combine all ingredients except twist in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the twist.
