Yesterday, I wrote a post about Dashiell Hammett’s birthday.
Today’s post is just a quick photo post of the cocktail I made:
The Dash Hammett is a smoky martini I read about in Mark Kingwell’s book called Classic Cocktails: A Modern Shake. It doesn’t specify brands or have any exotic ingredients, or even really all that many ingredients.
- 6 parts gin
- 1 part dry vermouth
- 1 teaspoon smoky scotch
- Lemon twist for garnish
Shake all ingredients over ice and strain into a chilled martini glass, or first rinse the glass with scotch — not shaking it with the gin and dry vermouth. Garnish with a lemon twist, expressing the oils over the drink and around the rim of the glass.
