Review:

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

History:

Adapted from a recipe in George J. Kappeler's 1895 Modern American Drinks. Kappler's 1895 recipe stipulates, "Three dashes Benedictine, three dashes orange bitters, half a jigger Tom gin, half a jigger French vermouth. Mix in a mixing-glass half-full fine ice. Strain into a cocktail-glass. Add a twisted orange peel."
