Journalist Cocktail

journalist cocktail

As far as I can tell, the Journalist cocktail was invented sometime around 1930, and appeared in the Savoy Cocktail book at that time. It’s a dry, crisp, refreshing drink with some pretty decent complexity to it. Try this one out:


  • 1 1/2 oz gin
  • 1/4 oz dry vermouth
  • 1/4 oz sweet vermouth
  • 1/4 oz lemon juice
  • 1/4 oz triple sec
  • dash bitters
  • shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass
