Now, we aren't drinking out of special engraved crystal cocktail glases, but beyond that we tried to stick to the drink as was told by said bartender.
Dubonnet and Gin
1 slice lemon
2 ice cubes
1 part English gin
2 parts Dubonnet
Remove any pits from the lemon slice (the Queen does not spit out lemon pits). Put the slice at the bottom of the glass. Top with two ice cubes (the most perfect cubes in the freezer). Add gin and Dubonnet. Mix.
Makes 1 cocktail
Dubonnet is a French aperitif (some stores keep it with the vermouth). It has an herbal flavor to it which blends well with the juniper flavor of the gin. I found it an easy drinker, but a strong little cocktail, just one went to my head. Bravo, to Betty for drinking something a little more interesting then a glass of sherry.
