A smooth, complex, Sazerac-style Martini.
Adapted from Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book:
"BOMBAY COCKTAIL (No. 2.)
1 Dash Absinthe.
2 Dashes Curaçao.
¼ French Vermouth.
¼ Italian Vermouth.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass."
I revisited my rendition of this cocktail in July 2021 to bring a little nearer to that in The Savoy Cocktail Book. The previous version comprised: 45ml cognac, 7.5ml triple sec, 22.5ml dry vermouth, 22.5ml rosso vermouth, and 5ml absinthe.
One serving of Bombay No. 2 contains 166 calories.
