Tommy's Margarita (IBA)
#52 in Top 100
The flavor of agave is king in this simple Margarita, made without the traditional orange liqueur.
Equal parts old tom gin and vermouth flavoured with the merest hint of maraschino, absinthe and orange bitters.
Veneziano Spritz (IBA)
Slightly sweetened, herbal flavoured and diluted wine. Those of you with a sweet tooth may like to try equal parts wine and Aperol with a splash of soda. Surprisingly it's the wine that dries this drink as Aperol is relatively sweet.
Vesper Dry Martini (Difford's)
Many bartenders advocate that a Martini should be stirred and not shaken, some citing the ridiculous argument that shaking will “bruise the gin.” If you like your Martinis shaken then avoid the possible look of distaste from your server and order a Vesper. This particular Dry Martini is always shaken, an action that aerates the drink, and makes it colder and more dilute than simply stirring. It also gives the drink a slightly clouded appearance and can leave small shards of ice on the surface of the drink - easily prevented by the use of a fine strainer when pouring.
Yellow Bird (IBA)
A sweet and sour cocktail with four different fruits, rum and a splash of Galliano.
