Mrs. Lin's Favorite "Tiger Tail"
Updated: Mar 26, 2021
The Lin family has shared the cock/mocktail recipe for one of Mrs. Lin
standard favorites we are calling "Classic Roar."
Among her many gifts, Helen prized the most her ability to drink grown men (yes, more than one at a time) under the table. This was a talent she inherited from her mother, a native of Shaoxing, Zhejiang and passed on to one of her daughters. Helen’s preferred weapon of mass inebriation was the classic martini. Herewith, her recipe (one serving):
2 1/2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
Green olive, de rigueur
Instructions Fill a large mixing glass with cracked ice, add gin and vermouth and stir well (Helen was not impressed with Bond). Strain into chilled martini glass, add olive and serve. Mocktail version Substitute the gin and vermouth with non-alcoholic versions that are widely available.
