Here’s a spin on the Casino recipe that I love so much, adding St. Germain (which I also love so much) to give it an extra dimension of taste.
The Downtown Casino
2 oz. vodka
1/2 oz. Maraschino liqueur
1/2 oz. St. Germain liqueur
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
Shake all the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a brandied cherry.
Use less Maraschino and lemon juice if you find either flavor too strong, and sub in gin for vodka at your pleasure.
