The Tuxedo cocktail is a blend of gin and vermouth with hints of maraschino, absinthe and orange bitters. The cocktail is usually served in a cocktail glass and garnished with a twist of lemon zest and a cherry. For the bitters, we recommend using Angostura orange bitters (link in the ingredients).
