After more than 2 years of exploring and blogging each time a different cocktail I feel the desire now to re-visit the most memorable ones. The Martinez is a brilliant one to start with.

This drink, I believe, was born of the Manhattan and is the father, or perhaps grandfather, of the Dry Gin Martini … Theoretically, at least, the Martinez was a variation on the Manhattan, and the Martini is, for all intents and purposes, a Martinez“, Brad Thomas Parsons cites Gary Regan in his book Bitters.

My favorite recipe is a more contemporary version with more gin than vermouth.


2 ounces Old Tom Gin, 1 ounce Carpano Antica, 1 tsp Maraschino, 2 dashes Boker´s Bitters, garnish: Lemon Twist


Stir ingredients with ice in a mixing glass and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the lemon twist.
