1 oz Dry vermouth
14 oz Bénédictine
14 oz Amer Picon
2 ds Orange bitters
1 twst Lemon peel (As garnish)
Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Inspired by an obscure recipe for a Brooklyn made with gin, I began thinking about the structure. I selected the Poet's Dream as a Martini riff starting place and merged the modifying liqueurs with the Creole Cocktail with its Picon and Benedictine. For a name, I kept it simple with the Creole Poet.
