Our comment:

Delicately smoky and almost meaty – be sure to serve with cured meat. A great aperitif cocktail.


Adapted from a drink created in 2016 by Dale DeGroff, King Cocktail, New York City, USA.

This recipe is courtesy of Dale's original recipe calls for: 1½ oz Chase English Oak Smoked Vodka, ½ oz Tanqueray No. TEN Gin, ¼ oz La Quintinye Vermouth Royal Dry Vermouth and 1 dash Bitter Truth's Jerry Thomas Own Decanter Bitters. Dale's preferred garnish is a small strip cured smoked pork on a skewer.
