Poet’s Dream

Poet's Dream cocktail with gin, dry vermouth, and Benedictine

The Poet’s Dream is a forgotten classic from the Old Walfdorf-Astoria Bar Book, published in 1935.

The equal-parts measurements couldn’t be easier, and yet each ingredient is perfectly highlighted: the bracing bite of gin, the aromatics of dry vermouth, and the honeyed spice of Bénédictine (a sweet herbal liqueur).
