I'm impressed. She uses a recipe perfected by Derek Brown, who is one of the best bartenders in the world. The secrets? One, a lot more vermouth than you are used to. Brown does 1:1 gin-to-vermouth, while Maddow's version is closer to 2:1. Either way, it's more than those stupid mists and sprays and hints of vermouth you are always told about. Two, a dash of orange bitters. Try it. I shit you not, it will be the best drink you've ever had. It was for Jimmy Fallon and it was for me.
