Angel of Death


Here, James Wampler uses Death's Door, a London dry-style gin that he says "creates a wickedly intense cocktail with hints of chocolate." Two kinds of bitters, Angostura and orange, give the drink a wonderful complexity. Use one dash of each, or two if you like your cocktails to have an extra edge.

  1. 2 ounces dry gin, such as Death's Door
  2. 3/4 ounce Carpano Antica Formula or other sweet vermouth
  3. 3/4 ounce Campari
  4. 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
  5. 2 dashes of orange bitters
  6. Ice
  7. 1 spiral-cut orange twist, for garnish
  1. In a mixing glass, combine the gin, vermouth, Campari and both bitters; fill with ice and stir well. Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with the twist.
