About this Cocktail

Stolen from holiday cocktail list...

The Martinez is often touted as the precurser to the Martini, and is a great cocktail to be able to pre-batch ahead of time, as the flavours will actually benefit from some time sat in the bottle together.

For an extra christmas twist stud your orange zest with a couple of cloves, or use a Christmas flavoured gin; Sacred make a fantastic Christmas pudding gin and also make a spiced vermouth, which can add a little bit of festive cheer too.

Ingredients:
  • 40ml sweet vermouth
  • 20 ml gin
  • 5 ml maraschino
  • 5 ml orange curacao
  • 1 dash angostura
Preparation:

Add all the ingredients to a mixing glass. Add ice and stir until well chilled. Strain straight into a chilled Martini glass, or strain into a bottle to keep in the fridge (if you’re going to do that best make a few though, right?). Garnish with a small twist of orange zest.
