The New Parisian: Pink Drink to serve on Valentine’s Day

The Parisian Cocktail: Valentine’s Day is coming up, and Esquire Magazine has updated the recipe for a classic drink from the 20’s, made in Harry’s New York Bar in Paris.  Men: If you want to shake up something for your lady on 2/14, try this instead of a Cosmo – be classy!

1 oz. Gin (Esquire recommends Tanqueray)

1 oz. Dry vermouth (Esquire recommends Noily Prat)

1/2 oz. Fresh Squeezed lemon juice

1/2 oz. Creme de Cassis (a Sweet liqueur – turns the drink pink)

Shake with ice in a cocktail shaker, strain into Martini or “cocktail” glasses (the old style shallow rounded stemmed glass) 

Have another.  Celebrate!
