Lone Tree Cocktail

Ooh, I like this photo. The Lone Tree is pretty much the same style of gin and vermouth drinks like the Martinez, and so it is a Martini variation.

I decided to go with an aged gin, though. Filibuster Dual Cask gin fits the bill here. And the rest is pretty simple. I did opt to use my own orange bitters here instead of Hella orange bitters. This is because my orange bitters are extremely orange zest flavored with much less of the baking spices that Hella uses. I made these bitters so long ago--they keep forever--that I forgot what I used in them other than lots of orange peels.
  • 2 oz. gin (Filibuster Dual Cask used)
  • 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth (Cocchi de Torino used)
  • 3 dashes orange bitters (homemade used)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
