1 1⁄2 oz Gin
1⁄2 oz Aromatized wine, Lillet Blanc (Or Cocchi Americano)
1⁄2 oz Bianco Vermouth
1⁄2 oz Herbal liqueur, Jeppson's Malort (Other malörts will work too)
1 twst Orange peel (As garnish)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.


I wondered what a Martini riff would be like with malört as a modifier? Would it be elegant as well as tasty? Therefore, I started with the Poet's Dream and besides swapping the liqueurs, I exchanged the dry vermouth for a split of Cocchi Americano and blanc vermouth since I figured that a little extra sweetness would round out the edges here. For a name, I paid tribute to a punk club in Chicago (given the Chicago-loved herbal liqueur) called Exit where I had been taken years ago.
