All Star Game

Tuesday night was baseball’s All Star Game; an annual event when a team of players from the American League play a team drawn from the National League. This is mainly an exhibition game, but the winner does determine whether the American or National League champions will have home field advantage in the World Series.

The All Star Game helped me narrow my choice of drink for Tuesday night. I wanted a cocktail with a baseball theme. I choose Cooperstown; which is the site of baseball’s Hall of Fame.

1.5oz  Gin
.75oz  Sweet Vermouth
.75oz  Dry Vermouth
2 dashes Orange Bitters
2  leaves Mint

Stir the ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Although the mint leaves were only in the drink for a short time, they have a noticeable impact on the flavour, making it very different from a regular Martini.
