Cocktail du jour: The Queens

As in the borough, not Her Majesty. Cheers to us all for making it through the first week of September, and for most of us the first week of school. If that doesn't call for a cocktail, I don't know what does. Time to put Mr. C&G to work.

Negroni and Aperol season is sadly coming to an end. It just doesn't feel right sitting back with our summery Italian favorites when there's a slight chill in the air. The Queens is a variation of the classic Manhattan, which is perfect for this transitional season.  

The Queens
1 oz gin
1 oz dry vermouth (Lillet Blanc)
1 oz sweet vermouth (Cocchi Vermouth di Torino)
1 oz pineapple juice
Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass and enjoy!
