holland house

1 3/4 oz Bols Genever
3/4 oz Dolin Dry Vermouth
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/4 oz Maraschino Liquor

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Twist a lemon over the top and rim the edge.

One of the other cocktails they served at the Bols Genever release party at Drink last week was the Holland House. This drink was the house cocktail at the Holland House Hotel's bar on Fifth Avenue and 30th in Manhattan. Harry Craddock was the head bartender there before Prohibition forced his departure to the Savoy Hotel in London. The drink itself is rather sharp and dry, and it is very much like a malty version of an Aviation cocktail.
