Created circa 1920, perhaps by one Johnny Mitta at the Chatham Hotel, Paris, the Rose is considered by cocktail historian David Wondrich to be one of the greatest cocktails ever invented. When I tried it I had to agree, and I included it in my list of The 16 Greatest Cocktails in Creation. The flavors are delicate, truly unique, and crazy-delicious.
2 oz Dolin dry vermouth
1 oz Schladerer Kirschwasser
1 tsp raspberry syrup or Chambord
Stir and strain into a chilled glass. Cherry garnish.
