Marconi Wireless

Apple brandy is such a cold weather spirit. Laird's is especially rich at 7 and a half years old. Sweet vermouth and Hella orange bitters with their holiday spices really make this cocktail perfect for the winter months.

The cocktail is classic turn-of-the-century, as the name suggests. It's refers to the wireless radio telegraph invented by Guglielmo Marconi which later led to the invention of radio-wave communication that benefited military and aviation in the early 20th century. So all of this is to say, you'll feel very 19th century while drinking a Marconi Wireless. 
  • 3 oz. apple brandy (Laird's used)
  • 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 3-5 dashes orange bitters
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
