Bennett Cocktail Instructions

The Bennett Cocktail is a classic cocktail that has been around since the early 20th century. It is a refreshing and sophisticated drink that is perfect for any occasion. This cocktail is made with gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and Angostura bitters. It is garnished with a lemon twist for added flavor and presentation. The Bennett Cocktail is known for its balanced flavors and smooth finish.

To make a Bennett Cocktail, you will need a cocktail shaker, a strainer, and a coupe glass. Start by filling the cocktail shaker with ice. Add 2 ounces of gin, 3/4 ounce of lemon juice, 1/2 ounce of simple syrup, and a dash of Angostura bitters to the shaker. Shake the mixture vigorously for about 15 seconds to combine the ingredients and chill the drink.

Once the drink is well chilled, strain it into a coupe glass. This will remove any ice chips or pulp from the lemon juice, resulting in a smooth and clear cocktail. Garnish the drink with a lemon twist by twisting a strip of lemon peel over the glass to release the oils, then dropping it in the drink.

The Bennett Cocktail is a timeless and elegant drink that is sure to impress your guests. Its combination of gin, lemon, and bitters creates a well-balanced and refreshing flavor profile. Whether you're hosting a cocktail party or simply want to enjoy a sophisticated drink at home, the Bennett Cocktail is a great choice. Cheers!

Best served in a Cocktail Glass.
