evensong

I removed the vodka from the Vesper (because, really, does any drink need vodka?), and added a hint of citrus.

2 oz gin
½ oz lillet
slice of lemon
1-2 dashes orange bitters

Pour the gin and lillet over ice, add the orange bitters and slice of lemon.

20th century

A classic cocktail created in honor of the art deco inspired 20th Century Limited train that ran from New York’s Grand Central Station and Chicago’s LaSalle Street Station. I discovered this at a chocolate festival. The ingredients combine into their own unique flavor.

1½ oz gin
¾ oz Lillet Blanc
¾ oz light creme de cacao
¾ oz lemon juice

combine in shaker over ice, strain into cocktail glass.
