3/4 oz Cocchi Americano
3/8 oz Pimm's No. 1
1 dash Regan's Bitters
Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass (1-1/4:1-1/4:5/8:2 dash is closer to a standardized 3 oz recipe).
The third drink I selected to write about at the Diageo Cocktails Around the World Happy Hour was created by Jackson Cannon of Eastern Standard in Boston. The Hong Kong Cocktail is his variation of a Manhattan that was "imagined to be created in the time of the British Admiralty's occupation of Hong Kong by an Italian-born steward named Giuseppe Reganini." Perhaps that Giuseppe Reganini is an allusion to Gary Regan whose orange bitters recipe donates some extra fruit notes to this cocktail.
