Diplomat Cocktail

Diplomat Cocktail

1 Dash Maraschino. (Luxardo)
2/3 French Vermouth. (Noilly Prat)
1/3 Italian Vermouth. (Punt e Mes)
(Splash Wild Turkey Rye Whiskey)

Shake well and strain into cocktail glass. (Build over ice, stir to chill.) Add cherry and squeeze lemon peel on top.

As usual, going with the build over cracked ice method for these vermouth heavy cocktails.

I guess, diplomats would have to keep their cool. Not drink too much strong “likker”.

Fortunately I do not have the weight of the world weighing down upon my shoulders, and can feel free to add a splash of Rye Whiskey to this. Significantly improved my diplomatic relations with the world and the cocktail, I must say.

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
