Dry Mermaid

November 1982
    A dry mermaid sounds like an endangered species. Somehow the anachronisitic name seems appropriate since this Martini variant is actually sweet.

    1 jigger (1 1/2 ounce) genever (Dutch gin), 1 tablespoon cherry brandy, lemon twist for garnish

    In a cocktail shaker combine the gin, the brandy, and 4 ice cubes, shake the mixture, and strain it into a chilled, stemmed cocktail glass. Garnish the drink with the lemon twist. Makes 1 drink.
