Ich habe Diffords Poet's Dream noch nicht getestet, aber ich liebe die Kombination von
Gin - Dry Vermouth - Benediktiner/bzw.KrÀuterlikör,
die ja das Martini-Thema aufgreift und erweitert.
Sie hat eine Reihe von Ă€ußerst anregenden Variationen hervorgebracht:

Im Savoy Cocktail Buch findet sich z.B. der

Merry Widow Cocktail
=====================
1/2 Gin
1/2 French (Dry) Vermouth
2 ds Bénédictine DOM
2 ds Angostura Bitters
2 ds Absinthe

Stir-Strain-Cocktailglass

Rolls Royce Cocktail
=====================
1/2 Gin
1/4 French Vermouth
1/4 Italian(Sweet)Vermouth
1 ds Bénédictine DOM

Shake-Strain-Cocktailglass

Simon Difford interpretiert den Caprice in seinem Guide#7 :

Caprice
=====================
1 1/2 Plymouth Gin
1/2 Dry Vermouth
1/2 Bénédictine DOM
1 ds Orange Bitters

A long stir-Strain-Cocktailglass

In "Erlesene Cocktails fĂŒr private GĂ€ste" fĂŒhrt Dietrich Bock folgenden Cocktail auf:

Argentina
=====================
2cl Dry Gin
2cl Dry Vermouth
1cl Bénédictine DOM
1cl Curacao Triple Sec (ich empfehle Cointreau)
1 ds Angostura Bitters
1 ds Orange Bitters
__________________________________________________________________

Das "Waldorf Astoria Bar Book" fĂŒhrt folgenden Cocktail
(hier in der Jay Hepburn Interpretation):

Guion
=====================
1/2 Plymouth Gin
1/2 Italian Vermouth
1/4 Bénédictine DOM
2 ds Orange Bitters

Stir all ingredients well with ice and strain in to a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon zest twist.

Jay Hepburn:
When making the drink I took a sneaky sip prior to garnishing and was rather disappointed, finding the drink quite sweet and with the vermouth dominating, making it quite one-dimensional.

However, in yet another demonstration of the power of the garnish, once I had cut a piece of lemon zest over the drink, imparting all that amazing juice, the drink was transformed. Vermouth was still the back-bone of the drink providing a lovely spicey, floral taste, but the cocktail had become far less sweet. This allowed the gin and the herbal notes of the Bénédictine to become more obvious, making for a lovely, balanced cocktail.

Bei obigem Rezept ist man dann schon nahe am Bijou des Savoy Buchs:

Bijou Cocktail
=====================
1/3 Plymouth Gin
1/3 Italian Vermouth
1/3 Green Chartreuse
1 Dash Orange Bitters
Stir, Strain, Cocktailglass, Cherry or Olive, Lemon Peel on Top

Ich habe noch eine andere Cocktailversion unter dem Namen "Poet's Dream" gefunden:

* 6cl London Dry Gin
* 3cl French Vermouth
* 1/2 Teelöffel Bénédictine DOM
* 2 Spritzer Orange Bitters

"Stir well with cracked ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with twist of lemon peel.

There are, in fact, two versions of the Poet's Dream floating around, and this isn't the Waldorf one. That calls for equal parts gin, vermouth, and Bénédictine, and it's, well, kinda sticky and kinda funky-tasting. We found this modification in a 1934 English drink book, the kind that rounds up recipes from everybody else's books and prints 'em without credit. "
