Washington Cocktail

You can tell the colonial style of this cocktail with its use of brandy and its outsized proportion of dry vermouth. Our founding fathers liked their brandy and fortified wines, and they combined them often. This still manages to be a lower ABV cocktail if that is your thing. It doesn't lack in flavor, though, with Angostura bitters and herbal vermouth.
  • 1 oz. brandy
  • 2 oz. dry vermouth
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar syrup (demerara used)
  • dash Angostura bitters
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
