What the Doctor Orders

Happy New Year, Imbibers! We're a little late posting this, but last weekend our own dear Dr. Cocktail did a fun segment for NPR on—what else?—classic cocktails, so we want to give him a special shout-out. Doc was fascinating as usual, and he had a terrific suggestion for a classic cocktail to enjoy in the new year: The Ford. Here's a link to the full interview, and here's the recipe for this excellent cocktail:

1 oz. gin
1 oz. dry vermouth
3 dashes Benedictine
3 dashes orange bitters
Cracked ice
Tool: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer
Glass: cocktail

Stir ingredients in a mixing glass and strain into a chilled glass.
