Hindenburg cocktail:  

Pauline Charteris Hindenburg Cocktail

My version of what Pauline might have crafted to imitate a martini in the absence of gin:

  • 3 oz kirschwasser
  • A tad less than 1/2 oz dry vermouth
  • A splash of Grenadine
  • Lemon peel*

*A peel… just the oily skin… not a “twist” with the bitter white pith.

Shake with ice; enough to make cold but not enough to dilute too badly.

Pauline’s Cherry Lips

The creative alternative by the interesting people at Café de Abejas:

A jigger (50 ml) of Kirschwasser
A barspoon of dry Vermouth
2 barspoons each of Absinthe and Maraschino liqueur
A dash of orange bitters
Two dashes of Peychaud’s bitters
Maraschino cherry or lemon peel for garnish

Stir and strain in to a cocktail glass.

My most recent posting at Net Advance of Physics Retro would seem to fall within the parameters of this group:
