The combination of the Dubonnet with the almonds in the orgeat made for a not-too-sweet spiced cherry pie effect.
Gin-haters, you won't notice the gin in this drink, so don't swap it for vodka. We used Gordon's, but a smoother gin like Plymouth would be more subtle. Traditionally, a cherry is dropped in for garnish, but my cherries were not to be found.
Combine in an iced cocktail shaker:
- 1 1/2 ounces Dubonnet
- 3/4 ounce gin
- 1/4 ounce orgeat
Stir until very cold. Strain into an iced cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.
