About this Cocktail

After visiting Watershed Distillery in Columbus, OH ( and bringing home a bottle of their bourbon barrel aged gin, I wondered what kind of cocktail I could make with something that was a nice sipper as well. A Martinez seem to be a natural fit. I scaled back the sweet vermouth and marachino to let the gin shine a little more.

  • 2 oz Watershed Bourbon Barrel Aged Gin
  • 3/4 oz Dolin Sweet Vermouth
  • 1 barspoon Luxardo Maraschino
  • Dash of Fee Brothers Orange Bitters
  • Orange Twist Garnish

Fill mixing glass or cocktail shaker with ice. Add all liquid ingredients and stir for 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe glass, or, as I prefer, a chilled old fashioned glass with three chilled whiskey rocks. Express orange twist over the drink, add, and enjoy.
