Cocktails of the Day: Snickering at Alaska

We’re so looking forward to the 2008 vice presidential debate tonight. There was really only once choice.

The Alaska Cocktail

1-1/2 ounces gin.
1/2 ounce yellow Chartreuse.

Combine with ice, stir for no less than 30 seconds and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Garnish with a freshly shot and field-dressed moose.

Okay, you can leave out that garnish. I’ll … find another garnish and get back to ya!

Murray said he’d be making this one tonight:

The Snicker Cocktail

1-1/2 ounces gin.
1/2 ounce dry vermouth.
1/4 ounce maraschino liqueur.
1/2 teaspoon simple syrup.
1 dash orange bitters.
1 egg white.

Dry shake the ingredients without ice for half a minute, then add the ice and shake for 15 seconds or so. Strain into a cocktail glass.

Hey, that sounds good.
