Saffron Gin

Perhaps the best infused Gin for cocktails. Add Lillet and lemon peel for a Vesper or simply add good tonic water. You could even enjoy it on the rocks with a slice of orange. — 7 years ago

Recipe No. 73 White Vermouth

Move over Cocchi and Lillet! This is perhaps the best quinquina vermouth I’ve had. It’s a good aperitif when served up or chilled, but the extra cardamom kick makes it a great cocktail ingredient. It makes a really good Vesper, but try it on a Bijou:
- 1.5oz navy strength gin (I used Krobar from Paso Robles, but Plymouth or Hayman’s should work great)
- 0.75 oz Green Chartreuse
- 0.75 oz ?! no. 73
- olives or cherries
