So with the AC down for another day and the room temperature in the house a balmy 85 degrees F, I’ve taken to sipping a cocktail named for an apropos landlord… Satan’s Whiskers (Straight, as opposed to Curly)…

1/2 oz. London Dry Gin

1/2 oz. Sweet Vermouth

1/2 oz. Dry Vermouth

1/2 oz. Orange Juice

2 tsp Grand Marnier (Cointreau for the Curly variety);

1 tsp Orange Bitters

Shake with crushed ice and strain into a (chilled) cocktail glass.
