From the Metropolitan Hotel in NYC.  This is a lighter variation of the Metropole Cocktail from a neighboring hotel.

Just had one to cap the night off.  What a wonderful way to show off some great dry vermouth.  In this case, Routin dry vermouth from the French Alps.  Another plus is this cocktail is a reverse proportion, so with the vermouth in the majority we have a lighter alcohol cocktail.  

Rating 88.
