jacksonia

1/3 Gordon's Gin (1 oz Beefeater)
1/3 Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth (1 oz)
1/3 Fockink Cherry Brandy (1 oz Cherry Heering)
1 dash Curaçao (1/4 oz Senior Curaçao)
1 dash Absinthe (1/8 oz Kübler)
1 dash Orange Bitters (Regan's)

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
Last Tuesday, we began the night with the Jacksonia from 1934's 1700 Cocktails for the Man Behind the Bar. The combination of ingredients reminded me some what of a gin version of the Infurator. The drink began with an absinthe aroma on top of a fruit note from the cherry or orange liqueurs. The cherry and dry vermouth sip came across as a plummy flavor, and the swallow contained additional cherry notes along with the gin as well as an absinthe and orange finish.
