I doubled up on this recipe .
- 3 oz Gin
- 1 oz Dry Vermouth
- dash of bitters
As you can see, the above recipe uses a 3:1 ratio of gin to bitters. This was the original ratio I used when I started mixing this classic cocktail.
I have since modified the ratio to 5:1 and I try to use orange bitters when possible. Regan’s Orange Bitters No.6 or Angostura Orange bitters are my preference.
