How to Make the Martinez

Some might not know, but the Martinez cocktail was said to be the precursor to its more popular cousin, the famed Martini, or so the rumor goes. Equal parts gin to sweet vermouth, plus some added maraschino liqueur and bitters – this cocktail is sweeter than our modern palates are used too, but it still had its fans.

The Martinez also originally is served with Old Tim Gin, a gin with added sugar, making it even sweeter. Here we have Jamie Campbell’s recipe, made with G’Vine Gin. He created it while he was their Brand Ambassador! You can hear his story on his Lush Life podcast interview. Try it if you want to sip a little bit of history!
