Get romantic with a Dawn of Love cocktail
This month, we’re enjoying the Dawn of Love, a vintage cocktail from 1934. This rich, velvety drink offers complex flavors (light juniper, grapefruit, plum and almond), but simplicity in preparation.
In an ice-filled mixing glass, combine 1½ ounces Dolin blanc vermouth and 1½ ounces Averell Damson gin liqueur. Stir 30 to 45 seconds then strain into a cocktail glass.
Finish by twisting a large orange peel over the drink to express the oils then garnish with the peel.
