Regan's orange bitters offers a delicate, yet complex orange flavor infused with spicy cinnamon and cloves. Most often used in Manhattans and Old Fashioneds. Produced by the Buffalo Trace distillery in Kentucky.
The original Dry Martini recipe contained orange bitters back in the early 1900's, and the word "dry" referred to the type, not the amount, of vermouth used. This recipe is equal parts gin and vermouth!
Classic Dry Martini:
1 1⁄2 oz. London dry or Plymouth gin
1 1⁄2 oz. French white dry vermouth
2 dashes Regan's orange bitters
Strip of orange peel
In a large glass, combine gin, vermouth, bitters, and 2 cups ice. Stir until well chilled and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist a strip of orange peel over the top and drop it in.
