guggenheim cocktail

1 jigger Dry Vermouth (2 oz Noilly Prat)
2 dash Fernet Branca (1/8 oz)
1 dash Orange Bitters (Regan's)

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
After viewing the putative earliest recipe for the Alaska in Jack Straub's 1913 Manual of Mixed Drinks on the EUVS site, I began perusing this book for other cocktail ideas. One that popped out to me was the aperitif-style Guggenheim Cocktail which was different from the one in Pioneers of Mixing at Elite Bars. Once prepared, this Guggenheim began with an orange aroma with light menthol notes. Next, a crisp white wine sip led into herbal and orange flavors with a menthol finish.
