How to make:

STIR all ingredients with ice and strain into chilled glass.

Garnish:

Lemon zest twist (discarded)

Comment:

Vodka both fortifies and brings out subtle bready cereal notes in this complexly spiced cocktail.

Variant:

With 1 shot of Bénédictine B&B replacing D.O.M. and cognac. (it's not nearly as good as the recipe we've used.)

Origin:

This recipe is adapted from one by drinks historian, David Wondrich (thanks Dave). The Gypsy originated in New York City's famed Russian Tea Room, which in 1938 published a vodka cocktail booklet which included this cocktail.
