Other than being a small town in California, I'm not sure if there is any significance to this cocktail's name. It must then belong to some now unknown bartender or some drinker with this unique gin preference.

Thankfully, this gin cocktail is pretty interesting with a fun interplay of flavors. A powerful blast of Angostura bitters is offset with sweet cherry brandy. Now quality spirits like Bluecoat gin and Dolin dry vermouth add booziness behind lemon tartness. Did you get all that? Here's the recipe to help you through it.
  • 2 oz. gin (Bluecoat gin used)
  • 1 oz. cherry brandy
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth (Dolin used)
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 3-5 dashes Angostura bitters
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into an Old Fashioned glass full of fresh ice.
