Minnehaha Cocktail

Gin, Sweet vermouth, Dry vermouth, Pastis, Orange juice
1 12ozGin
34ozDry vermouth
34ozSweet vermouth
14ozOrange juice
1dsPastis (optional)
Shake, strain, up. *pastis float is optional
The optional pastis, for me, is very dependent on the choice of gin
The Minnehaha (a Lakota Sioux word for "curling water" or "waterfall") is one of those classic cocktails that has 101 different recipes. This is close to the Savoy version, but I went lighter on the orange juice. I'm assuming there will be a lot of interpretations for this cocktail's build.
