Bermuda Highball

There's a handful of Bermuda named drinks that, in addition it being strong, have a helping of apricot brandy in them. This is not one of them. The Bermuda Highball is strong though.

Brandy, dry vermouth and gin make up the spirits, and only soda spreads it out. I can see this being a great beach cocktail--long in the drinking but strong enough that you don't have to get out of your beach chair to get another one.
  • 1 1/2 oz. gin (Catoctin Creek Watershed gin used)
  • 1 oz. brandy (Cognac please)
  • 1 oz. dry vermouth
  • sparkling water
  • lemon twist
Combine brandy, gin and vermouth in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a Collins glass full of fresh ice. Top with sparkling water and garnish with a lemon twist.
