The Happiness Cocktail from Batch Cocktails by Maggie Hoffman
Makes about 8 servings in a 1-liter swing top bottle
2 cups Carpano Antica sweet vermouth
1 cup bourbon
3 teaspoons Angostura bitters
1/2 cup water
8 orange twists
At least 2 hours before serving, make the batch. Use a small funnel to pour vermouth, bourbon, bitters and water into a 1-liter swing-top bottle. Seal, turn gently end over end to mix, and refrigerate.
To serve, turn bottle gently to mix. Place a large ice cube in each rocks glass, then pour into cocktail. Express oils from an orange twist over each drink and use twist as garnish.
