1/2 oz Dolin Blanc Vermouth
1/4 oz Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Saturdays ago, I spotted an intriguing El Presidente riff on Kindred Cocktails called El Capitan. The recipe was crafted by Carlo Caroscio in 2016 during his first year at Backbar in Somerville where is currently the bar manager. In the glass, El Capitan saluted the nose with lemon, banana, grassy, and orange aromas. Next, a light caramel sip with a bit of body flowed into rum, tropical, banana, and grassy flavors with a peachy-orange finish.
