Ingredients

  • One 1-liter oak barrel (see Note)
  • 11 ounces gin
  • 11 ounces sweet vermouth
  • 11 ounces Campari
  • Ice
  • Orange twists, for serving

How to make this recipe

  1. If the barrel is new and dry inside, fill it with water and let stand until watertight, about 24 hours. Drain.
  2. Using a funnel, fill the barrel with all of the liquid ingredients. Let age, tasting a sample once a week, until the cocktail has taken on a rounded but not overly oaky flavor, about 1 month.
  3. Strain the cocktail through a coffee filter–lined funnel into a glass container and store indefinitely.
  4. To serve, pour 3 ounces of the cocktail into an ice-filled rocks glass and stir well, then garnish with a twist.

Notes

You can find 1-, 2-, 3- and 5-liter barrels at tuthilltown.com ($60 to $96). For barrels larger than 1 liter, multiply each aged cocktail recipe proportionately.
