Dubonnt Cocktail

I caught an error in the NY Bartender's Guide when I made this drink. The recipe calls for a cocktail glass, which makes sense. The image displaying the type of glassware shows an Old Fashioned glass. But the directions say to strain the drink. Not what you'd do with an Old Fashioned glass.

But back to the drink itself. Dubonnet Rouge does a lot to make this gin drink taste like a rich whiskey cocktail. It is a fortified wine with gentian that's spicy and bitter as welly as sugary sweet. That and the bitters mean that whatever gin you pick will be well supported.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 1/2 oz. Dubonnet Rouge
  • dash Angostura bitters
  • lemon twist
Combine liquid ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist lemon peel over the glass and drop it in.
