Satan's Whiskers

This tastes like a screwdriver gone wrong, and not in a good, interesting way. Perhaps eliminate the OJ and up the bitters?

1 ounce gin
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
1/2 ounce orange liqueur (try Grand Marnier or orange curaçao)
1 ounce fresh-squeezed orange juice
1 dash orange bitters

Combine the ingredients in a Boston shaker or cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain the contents into a chilled cocktail glass.

White Lady

We went to The Columbia Room for Jon's birthday, wherein Audrey had and enjoyed a White Lady cocktail. We've begun researching and working on our own version. Wikipedia has an unusually detailed article on it:

1+ part lemon juice
1 part Cointreau
Optionally, egg white - from 1 tsp to a half of an egg's white

Sugar the rim of a wine or martini glass (champagne coupe if using egg)

Sidecar

The sidecar is nice, citrusy drink with brandy as its base spirit. Modern mixtures often have equal parts, I prefer a 3/2/1 mix:

3 parts Cognac
2 parts lemon juice
1 part Cointreau or triple sec

Mix the ingredients in a shaker half full of ice. Strain and serve with crushed ice in a sugar-rimmed lowball. Garnish with a strip of lemon rind.

Note that the original mixture, according to The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, is:

8 parts Cognac or Armagnac
2 parts lemon juice
1 part Cointreau or triple sec
