With the holiday season upon us, I thought I’d take this opportunity to introduce you to a cocktail I invented in June 2003. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you...the Vagabond:

  1. Put some crushed ice into a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add a couple of healthy shakes of Angostura Bitters.
  3. Add a splash of dry vermouth.
  4. Shake well, then strain off and discard the liquid.
  5. Add an ounce of good gin, straight from the freezer.
  6. Shake well, then strain the liquid into a frosted martini glass.
  7. Spear an olive and a cocktail onion with a toothpick and drop them into the glass.
  8. Top off the glass with very fresh (important!), very cold club soda.
