Satan's Whiskers

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.

Spring Sidecar

Spring Sidecar

This combines the floral tartness of a sidecar with the sweetness of cherries.

2 parts Rye
1 part Cointreau
a few dashes orange bitters
a few dashes cherry bitters
a teaspoon of cherry syrup

Shake with ice, serve up in a cocktail glass garnished with a maraschino cherry and an orange slice.

Drop one drop of peychaud's bitters on top for a "cherry blossom" effect
