Moulin Rouge Martini

1 ½ oz. sloe gin

The Moulin Rouge Martini

3/4 oz. sweet vermouth

Dash of Angostura Bitters

Fill chilled shaker half full with cracked ice.  Add ingredients.  Stir and strain into chilled cocktail glass.

The sloe is a small wild plum.  Therefore, the liqueur made from it is not a gin at all.  Sloe gin has the enticing flavor of wild cherry and bitter almond.  Bright red and medium sweet, it is used in mixed drinks and rarely consumed on its own.

Look at the world through rose-colored glasses!
