1.5 oz vodka
1.5 oz white port
1 dash Angostura bitters
orange or lemon twist, for garnish
Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange or lemon twist.
The drink originally appears in the Café Royal Cocktail Book, a 1937 publication of the United Kingdom Bartenders Guild. Compiled by William J. Tarling, the credit for this drink is given to “A. Mackintosh.” I was turned onto it by Jeffrey Morgenthaler, who I think came across it at the Bar Convent Berlin and offered it on the Clyde Common cocktail menu for a while.
