William Whitfield

Vodka (I use a grain vodka)
Sweet Vemouth (any brand)
Canton (Domaine De Canton)
Whole lemon (for the fresh juice)

fill shaker with ice

add a splash of Canton(10%)
shake (about 30 shakes...)
pour into martini glass
garnish with lemon twist

Winner: Tom Brown
Score: 5-0
Game Summary: Whitfield's cocktail was too puckery, even for the deck or boat. Brown's was a classic cocktail with the right amount of absinthe and perfect peach note.
