THE MARTINEZ COCKTAIL

martinez

Said to be the stylish father of the Martini – this old-school hero first appeared in O.H. Byron’s 1884 Modern Bartenders’ Guide. It’s a sweet gin-vermouth cocktail any classic drink lover should know by heart.

INGREDIENTS

1 dash of orange bitters
15ml of sweet vermouth
45ml of conker gin
5 ml maraschino cherry liqueur

METHOD

Add all ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice.
Shake and strain into a chilled coupette glass.
Garnish with orange twist (optional).

TIP

Spritzing the orange peel over the glass releases the essential oils of the orange and give the drink extra flavour and aroma.
