Lovely Libations | Pompano

Lance une Mode has escaped to Florida for a few days. In celebration, we’re tossing back a couple sunshiny cocktails. The Pompano (named after nearby Pompano Beach) is basically a grapefruit Martini, smoothed out with some orange bitters. The traditional garnish is usually an orange slice, but we like a lemon twist to complete a citrus trifecta.
. . . full recipe after the jump.


1 3/4 oz Plymouth gin
1 1/4 oz freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
3/4 oz Noilly Pratt dry vermouth
2 dashes Fee Brothers West Indian orange bitters
lemon twist

Build drink in shaker tin. Add ice. Shake until very cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a wide twist of lemon peel. Enjoy.
