The Grumpy Dingo Radio Emerson Cocktail

Updated: Sep 9, 2020

The Emerson Cocktail dates back to 1914 and is claimed to be named after the literary figure Ralph Waldo Emerson. A writer associated with drinking? You don't say? Well anyway, let's put down the pen and paper and get mixin'!


2 ounces of Gin

1 ounce of Sweet Vermouth

The juice of half a lemon or half a lime

.5 ounces of Maraschino Liqueur

Maraschino Cherry for garnish


Pour all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice.


Strain into a martini glass.

Garnish with a Maraschino Cherry.

Enjoy with a good book. Or not.
