Smooth Dolin vermouth and sloe gin (Plymouth's is made with a high-proof infusion of real sloeberries) are offset by fresh lemon juice in this rich and fruity (but not over sweet) cocktail from David Slape, featured in The PDT Cocktail Book.

Note: To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
