1 oz Gin (Northshore No. 6)
1 oz Bianco Vermouth (Dolin Blanc)
1 barspoon Benedictine
3 drop Orange Blossom Water
1 dash Peychaud's Bitters
Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a long orange twist.
I also created another drink later in the night for TDN which was a New Orleans-inspired smash named after the antiques store where the blogger cocktail hour was held at Tales of the Cocktail, M.S. Rau Antiques:
• 1/2 Lemon (in ~4 pieces)
• 2 sprig Mint
• 2 Sugar Cubes
• 2 dash Peychaud's Bitters
Muddle and then add the following:
• 1 oz Cognac
• 1 oz Rye
• 1 barspoon Herbsaint, Pastis, or Absinthe
Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass. Garnish with a mint sprig.
