Poor Child



Poor Child

  • 2.0 oz. London Dry Gin
  • 1.0 oz. Maurin Quina
  • 0.5 oz. Dolin Blanc vermouth
  • 1 dash orange bitters

Stir with ice and strain into coupe.

I have absolutely no idea where this one came from. I *think* that to represent the four singers in the quartet “Poor Child” I gave an ingredient to each, but for the life of me I don’t know why Black is London Dry Gin or Queenie is Maurin Quina (maybe I was playing on the word “Quina,” more obvious now that I type it out?). Burrs is bitter, I get it.

Whatever the concept was originally for this drink, it is tasty, so here it is. Forget the theme and just enjoy a sip. No poor child here.
