Queen Elizabeth

Benedictine is most often used in small amounts as an accent to a drink. In this one, we’re going to use a more substantial pour. The Queen Elizabeth is an odd vintage drink that doesn’t call for any of your typical base spirits, instead mixing dry vermouth with Benedictine and lime juice. It’s a weird build but it works out quite nicely, and its relatively low proof makes it a great choice for outdoor summer sessions.

  • 1 1/2 oz dry vermouth
  • 3/4 oz Benedictine
  • 3/4 oz lime juice

Shake with ice, strain into a chilled coupe, and serve.
