Moulin Rouge Martini
1 ½ oz. sloe gin
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.
