"Every year, a week after Thanksgiving, we throw a party for all our friends. My husband discovered the Wilga Hill Boomerang in a cocktail book, and it has become the signature drink for the event."
We streamlined and lightened the original recipe but kept true to the gin, apple, and vermouth at its heart. Premix big batches (except the ice) in a pitcher up to a day ahead. Shake servings for 1 or 2 at a time with ice.
1 1/2 ounces dry gin
1 1/2 ounces unfiltered apple cider (such as Zeigler's)
1/2 ounce red vermouth (such as Dolin)
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grenadine
How to Make It
Combine all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well, and strain into a glass.
