Vintage Cocktail Project – The Ford Cocktail

  1. Coming in a little late, but the Caprice is probably a better variation:

    1.5 oz. gin
    0.5 oz. dry vermouth
    0.5 oz. benedictine
    1 dash orange bitters
    garnish with orange.

    This has more of a martini feel to it.

  2. Try using Old Tom gin in place of a dry. It alleviates most of the clashing you experienced, and fits more into the time frame of the cocktail. This almost seems like the missing link cocktail between a martinez and the martini to me.
