The cult of the Dry Martini reaches far and wide. However, in our opinion the lesser known Martinez is deserving of equal praise.
Combining power, a perfectly balanced level of sweetness and a showcase for the beautiful herbal intensity of Garden Swift gin. If you are looking for a short aperitif then we can reccomend:
50ml of Garden Swift dry gin (or alternatively one of our barrel aged gins)
25ml of Rosso Vermouth (sweet Italian)
6ml of Dry Vermouth (white French)
6ml of Triple Sec (e.g., Cointreau)
1 Dash Angostura bitters
A slice of orange zest
Combine all the ingredients, bar the orange zest, in an ice filled shaker. Shake until the shaker is well coated in condensation. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Twist the orange zest over the glass to express the essential oils and place in the drink.
