MB Cocktail Contest: Michael Oakley vs. John Dietl

Michael Oakley

Ingredients:
2 oz tanquery 10 gin
1/2 oz campari
1/2 oz st. Germain
1/4 oz luxardo maraschino liquor
1/8 oz orgeat
2 dashes Fee's barrel aged whiskey bitters

John Dietl

Ingredients:
1.5 oz. London Dry Gin
0.5 oz. Bonded Apple Brandy
1 tsp. simple syrup (1-to-1 sugar to water)
4 drops Orange Bitters
1 lemon twist

1. Pour the Gin, the Apple Brandy, the simple syrup, and the bitters into a mixing vessel.
2. Stir with ice.
3. Strain into a cocktail glass.
4. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Winner: John Dietl
Score: 3-2
Game Summary: Oakley's cocktail was called "exciting" by one judge, but the majority of the others could not conceive of finishing the whole thing. Plus it's a bit fussy. When we have the Spectacular Bitch cocktail contest, this could be the winner. Dietl's drink is simple, beautiful, enjoyable.
