The last time Mike and I were in New York it was sort of for my birthday but also to see The Clock at MoMA, possibly my favorite museum on the planet. The line had a four-hour wait, but I managed to make friends with the girl in front of us. I held her place while she went to buy a book, and she held our place while we had lunch. By the time we got back in line, we only had five more minutes to wait.
At lunch, I had a truly fantastic cocktail in MoMA's high end bar, The Modern. I was thrilled to find that the recipe had been printed online, and though the ingredients are a little hard to find, it's worth the search.
- 1 1/2 ounces gin
- 1 1/2 ounces Dolin Blanc Vermouth
- 1 1/2 ounces Cocchi Americano
- Dash fino sherry
- Garnish: Lemon twist
Fill a mixing glass with ice. Add gin, vermouth, Cocchi Americano, and sherry. Stir until well chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass, garnish with lemon twist, and serve.
