argentina

1/3 jigger Gin (1 oz Wireworks)
1/3 jigger Dry Vermouth (1 oz Dolin)
1 spoon Cointreau (1/3 oz)
1 spoon Bénédictine (1/3 oz)
1 spoon Orange Juice (1/3 oz)
1 dash Orange Bitters (Regan's)
2 drop Bitters (1 light dash Fee's Boston Cocktail Summit Bitters)

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
After the Lion's Share, I opened up my 1934 edition of William Boothby's The World's Drinks and How To Mix Them and spotted the Argentina. The recipe is a gin drink that reminded me of the Honeymoon and the Scofflaw in structure and flavor combinations. Once mixed, a gin and orange aroma gave way to an orange and wine sip. Next, an herbal and gin swallow was chased by orange peel and spice notes.
