Wembley Cocktail

The Wembley Cocktail could be a Martini variation except of the proportions, which is lesson gin and more on dry vermouth. The thing that sets it apart, and makes it really stand out from other apricot brandy cocktails with gin bases, is the small amount of apple brandy. These small additions are really elegant and give the cocktail a fruitiness that's unexpectedly good and natural tasting.

The apple brandy I used is actual bootleg apple brandy at 90 proof and aged in oak. The gin is of a better pedigree.
  • 2 oz. gin (ImaGination gin used)
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
  • 1/4 oz. apple brandy
  • 1/4 oz. apricot brandy
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
