The Serpent’s Tooth cocktail is best served to those slippery devils with sharp tongue and wicked spirit. It is best savored with sordid tales of misdeeds and misconduct of the devious sort. Serpent’s Tooth is sure to stir the spirit, sate the soul and mislead the faint of heart. Tread carefully.
1-1/2 ounce Irish Whiskey
1 ounce Sweet Vermouth
1/2 ounce Kummel*
1/2 ounce Fresh Lemon Juice
3 dashes Angostura Bitters
Combine liquids in mixing glass with ice. Stir until thoroughly chilled. Strain into chilled cocktail glass. Sip and savor with slightly forked tongue and sly smile.
*Kummelliqueur is flavored with caraway, cumin and fennel.
