Recipe: Raymond Hitch Cocktail

Ingredients and Tools:
Cocktail shaker
Ice cubes
4 oz. Italian vermouth
2 oz. freshly squeezed orange juice
Dash orange bitters
Chilled cocktail glass
Orange slice, to serve

Step 1:
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice cubes.

Step 2:
Add the Italian vermouth, freshly squeezed orange juice and orange bitters.

Step 3:
Cover the cocktail shaker with the palm of your hand or the supplied top and shake vigorously for 20 to 30 seconds.

Step 4:
Strain the cocktail into a chilled cocktail glass.

Step 5:
Garnish the drink with a fresh orange slice and serve immediately.

For a tropical variation add one-half ounce freshly squeezed lime juice. If you prefer a sweeter cocktail, use Rose’s sweetened lime juice instead of freshly squeezed lime juice.

Local Guide:
Check out Robert Burns Wines located at 157 N. Robertson Blvd. in Beverly Hills, CA if you need to purchase vermouth or bitters for this recipe. Vermouth, much like wine is not all the same, and a knowledgeable guide can be helpful in the process of understanding what is good and what is not.
