  • 2 oz gin, Dolin red, half Aria gin / half Ransom Old Tom, 2 ds Regan's orange bitters. Pretty good, but a bit sweet...added a pinch of lemon-herb flake salt to finish. Reminds us a bit of a Ford. — ★★★
  • 2 oz gin — ★★★★★
  • Made with Gordon's and Martini. Nicely sweet than bitter. Good complexity for how little effort is required. I can see this working with double the gin per the comment, too. — ★★★★

Comments

Pretty good with both Carpano Antica and Punt e Mes; a couple dashes of Angostura orange bitters improved it for me. I think an orange or lime twist would also help.
