Satan’s Whiskers

From "Cocktail: The Drinks Bible for the 21st Century.” The authors say there are two ways to make Satan’s Whiskers, straight or curled. The “straight” Whiskers uses Grand Marnier; the “curled” Whiskers uses Cointreau. We like ours straight. And straight up. Makes 2 drinks, with leftovers.


  • Satan’s Whiskers
  • 1 1/2 ounces gin
  • 1 1/2 ounces sweet vermouth
  • 1 1/2 ounces dry vermouth
  • 1 ounce orange juice
  • 1 ounce Grand Marnier
  • 2 dashes orange bitters


  1. Shake with cracked ice; strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
