le Coq d'Or

This cocktail is classical in its name and style: "Hymn to the Sun," the Opera by Rimksy Korsakov. With no citrus, you get an intensely fruity and dry spicy liquor kick. This drink is rich, so I recommend using a dry gin here. Bulldog is perfectly London in style, so It is appropriately spicy and light. Tanqueray, Beefeater or Broker's would also be appropriate choices.
  • 1 oz. gin (Bulldog used)
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
  • 1/2 oz. apricot brandy
  • 1/2 oz. triple sec
  • maraschino cherry
Combine liquid ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the cherry.
