Orange zest twist


The Ford Cocktail is a Martini-style cocktail sweetened by both the use of old tom gin and Bénédictine D.O.M. liqueur (not B&B) served ‘wet’ with a generous splash of dry vermouth. The orange bitters and zest are essential to the drink’s success.


Adapted from a recipe in George J Kappeler's 1900 book, Modern American Drinks.
