Martinez

c. 1887

The grandparent to the modern Dry Martini.

2 oz Tom Cat Gin
1 oz Sweet Vermouth
1 bar-spoon Maraschino liqueur
2 dashes Orange Bitters
2 dashes Bokers Bitters

Combine ingredients in mixing glass, add ice, stir, then strain into a chilled coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.

The original recipe was 2 oz Sweet Vermouth and 1 oz Gin, which makes for a delicious aperitif and lower ABV cocktail.  Try it either way.  It works well with our Barr Hill gin as well!
