How to make a Taxi cocktail:
For the Taxi recipe we use a chilled cocktail glass.
Fill a mixing glass with ice cubes.
Add the dry vermouth, the gin, the lime juice and the pastis.
Stir with a bar spoon.
Strain into your cocktail glass and your Taxi drink is ready.
On August 17 we celebrate the birthday of Robert De Niro.
One of De Niro’s most memorable roles was in Taxi Driver where he plays a mentally unstable night-time taxi driver.
That’s why the Taxi cocktail drink is the cocktail of the day on August 17.
