The Maddow

This smooth drink is a variation on the Perfect Gin Manhattan (made with half French vermouth and half Italian), but features rich, slightly sweet Old Tom gin. Jason Littrell of Jbird Cocktails in NYC named the drink after Rachel Maddow, in the hope that she'd swing by the bar.

At Jbird, they serve the first few sips of the cocktail in a tiny martini glass, with the rest kept on ice for later.
