The Doctor’s Cocktails

The Negroni

This is your Doctor’s favourite and should be served with lots of ice in a highball glass. One has also found that a drop of angostura bitters does not go amiss in this wonderful concoction.

  • 1 part Gin
  • 1 Part Sweet Vermouth
  • 1 part Campari

The Dry Martini

Gin – Tanqueray Ten mes amis! and a wave over the glass of the Noilly Prat. Shaken with lots of ice and poured into a chilled Martini glass.  Garnish with an obligatory Olive. Heaven! Measures? Bah!

The Old Pal

  • 2 parts rye whiskey
  • 1 parts dry vermouth
  • 1 parts  Campari

Vin d’orange

An interesting french concotion which one found served in Brasserie Zedel in London.

750 ml. rosé wine
1/2 cup vodka
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1 cinnamon stick
2 navel oranges, quartered
1 lemon, quartered
