The Fleet Street

The Fleet Street is a somewhat mild cocktail whose flavors downplay, rather than accentuate, each other. Of course the brand of gin can change that. I used New Amsterdam which has a very smooth and mild juniper flavor. The Sweet Vermouth and lemon juice make this a nice after dinner drink. It’s an accessible cocktail that a wide variety of drinkers can enjoy.

1 1/2 oz Gin

1/2 oz Sweet Vermouth

1 tsp Dry Vermouth

1 tsp Triple Sec

1 tsp Lemon juice

Fill a cocktail shaker half full with ice, pour in all 5 ingredients and shake well for about 30 seconds. Strain into a cocktail glass and serve.

Note: It’s called a cocktail glass, not a martini glass. More on this later.
