The Monte Carlo cocktail is a classic cocktail that is made with gin, dry vermouth, orange curaçao, and orange bitters. The origins of this cocktail are unknown, it is not clear where or when it was first created. The drink is typically made by shaking gin, dry vermouth, orange curaçao, and orange bitters together with ice, and then straining it into a chilled cocktail glass. The Monte Carlo is a classic example of a "gin cocktail" a category of drinks that are typically made with gin as their base ingredient. It's a variation of the classic Martini cocktail, with the addition of orange curaçao, a type of orange liqueur. The Monte Carlo is a perfect balance of sweet, citrusy and strong and it's perfect for any occasion, particularly as a summer drink. The Monte Carlo is a versatile drink that can be made with different types of gin and variations on the recipe have been created over the years. However, it's not as well-known as other classic cocktails and it's not as popular as it used to be.
