Cocktail Time

This is an Ideal Cocktail, courtesy of the Savoy Cocktail Book.


Ideal Cocktail

2 parts gin
1 part Italian [sweet] vermouth
3 dashes Maraschino liqueur
1 tbl. grapefruit juice

Shake over clean ice; strain.

The original recipe calls for "a small nut" for garnish. (I passed.)

Happy Weekend!

Not sure what the nut is for, but the rest of the drink sounds delicious.

I've been thinking about it...I think the bartender had too many stale nuts that no one wanted to eat...voila!, a cocktail garnish.
