  • 2 ounces Tanqueray No. Ten Gin

Squeeze the grapefruit twists over the mixing glass, then drop them in. Add the remaining ingredients and stir over ice. Strain into a coupe. No garnish.

THOMAS WAUGH, 2009 This is a riff on the Alaska cocktail, which first appeared in The Savoy Cocktail Book. The Alaska is a martini made with yellow Chartreuse; I subbed in Galliano, which is similar but with more pronounced vanilla and anise flavors.—TW
