1 2⁄3 oz Gin, Gabriel Boudier Saffron
2 1⁄2 t Orange Curaçao, Marie Brizard (Dry or any bitter orange liqueur)

Stir and strain into a martini glass


Originally made at Mother's Ruin Gin Palace using liqueurs and bitters we make on site. But I think a good version could be made using commercially available ingredients. A good orange bitters of any brand, and a bitter orange liqueur such as dry curaçao should stand in well

  • I like it, but it needs something to provide some dynamic tension. I think that next time I will muddle in some black pepper, then double strain.

Curated this: Capitalized the name of the drink. Cleaned up the notes section quite a bit - added Gabriel Boudier Saffron as a brand of gin. Corrected Dolin entry to Blanc Vermouth. Cleaned up the instructions - removed the recap of the drink. Thanks, Zachary
