en cuatro

3/4 oz Pisco (Encanto)
3/4 oz Dry Gin (Tanqueray Malacca)
3/4 oz Dry Vermouth (Noilly Prat)
3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth (Lacuesta Rojo)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
After work two Fridays ago, I returned to Kara Newman's Shake Stir Sip book and landed upon the En Cuatro created by Ivy Mix at Leyenda. The combination was a pisco-gin Perfect Martini reminiscent of her 50-25-25 pisco-gin Dry Martini. The drink whose name translates to "in fourths" or "in quarters" began with a lemon and red grape bouquet. Next, a crisp sip with hints of red fruit gave way to earthy pisco, juniper, and herbal flavors on the swallow.
