Imbibing Mr. Boston: Boomerang Cocktail

IMG_4567-800Another cocktail whose origins remain a mystery.  Suffice it to say that there have been several iterations of drinks with this name over the years, one of them listed in the Savoy Cocktail Guide.  However, that is an entirely different recipe.

This is basically pink gin with a touch of cherry.  Overall, an interesting twist (no pun intended) to the venerable Martini class of cocktails.

Boomerang
1.5oz gin
1oz dry vermouth
1 tsp maraschino liqueur
1 dash angostura bitters
Garnish: lemon twist

Stir with ice and strain into chilled cocktail glass.  Add lemon twist.
