Not just a delightful compliment to pay to a lady, Elegant is also another wonderful cocktail invented at the Cambon Bar at the Ritz Paris. (See also the Fog Horn.) While this may seem quite similar to a Martini, the addition of Grand Marnier makes a world of difference. The Ritz Paris being the international hub that it is, the recipe is measured in a ratio of tenths so as to avoid nationally specific units of measurement.

5/10 gin

4/10 dry vermouth

1/10 Grand Marnier

Fill a mixing glass half way with ice, add all three ingredients, and stir. Strain into a cocktail glass.
