Income Tax Cocktail

I was browsing recipes on Imbibe and came up with this tasty drink, the Income Tax Cocktail.

It’s the weekend, so I thought I’d make it a little bigger than the recipe – here’s what I did:

  • 2 oz Plymouth Gin
  • 1 oz Martini & Rossi Dry Vermouth
  • 1 oz Martini & Rossi Sweet Vermouth
  • Juice squeezed from about 1/2 blood orange
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitteres
  • Star-trek shaped orange rind for garnish

Because of the orange juice plus I wanted it really cold, I shook it vigorously, unlike my usual “stir-shake.” It seems like a drink that belongs in the coupe glass.

It was quite good. Note that the recipe is very similar to the Bronx Cocktail, with just the addition of the bitters.
