White Cocktail

The White Cocktail features some flavors that not everyone loves: gin, anisette and orange bitters. If you can’t stand any or all of those, you’ll probably just want to give this one a miss.

But for those who enjoy them, this drink is a fascinating, complex blend of herbal and citrus notes. It makes a wonderful change from a dry gin martini – especially for those who dislike vermouth, because the anisette basically replaces the small amount of vermouth used in a dry martini.


  • 2 1/2 ounces gin
  • 1/2 ounce anisette
  • 3 dashes of orange bitters

Pour the ingredients into a martini glass and stir.
