The lemon zest plays a significant role in adding fresh and citrusy flavor to this sweet cocktail. Gently twist it over the contents of the glass prior to serving to release the peel’s natural oils into the beverage.


  • 1 shot gin
  • 1 shot sweet vermouth
  • 1/4 shot Bénédictine
  • Dash of orange bitters
  • Lemon zest twist to garnish


  1. Place all of the ingredients, except for the lemon zest twist, into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Slowly stir the mixture for 30 seconds and then strain into a cocktail glass.
  3. Gently twist the lemon peel over the drink to release its natural oils and then run it around the rim of the glass. Drop the twist into the glass to garnish and then serve immediately.
