Washington Cocktail RecipeThis drink is kind of an oddity because the main ingredient is Dry Vermouth.   Not too often will you see this being the center piece to any cocktail.  But, with the brandy being the secondary, and the other ingredients included, it works out nicely.

I need to warn you that this cocktail is not for those looking to hide the flavor of the booze, but to enjoy the combination that has been well crafted within this drink.  If you are a true cocktailer, this is something worth taking a look at.  Sometimes simplicity is the way to go.  Cheers!
