Adonis II Cocktail

We are very fond of the classic Adonis cocktail, one of the oldest in the book.  It is a simple mix of dry sherry, sweet vermouth and orange bitters.  This Dale Degroff variation was delicious too, and a little longer with the addition of fresh orange juice.  Take 2 parts sherry (we used dry Amontillado), 1 part sweet vermouth (we use the peerless Carpano Antica Formula), and 1 part freshly squeezed (please) orange juice, with a couple of dashes of orange bitters.  Shake on ice and serve in a martini glass with an orange twist.  Delicious with the Gougeres from the earlier posting before dinner.
