This legendary cocktail is the precursor of the most famous of all cocktails – a Martini Cocktail.
Some interesting facts about a Martinez are given here by Jamie Boudreau.
My favorite version of a Martinez Cocktail has sweet vermouth taste with light citrus and floral undertones. Try citrus vermouth by Cinzano (Lemetto or Orancio) for unusual results and new experience.
40 ml gin
40 ml Italian (sweet) vermouth
2 teaspoons maraschino liqueur
1 dash Angostura bitters
Stir (sic!). Cocktail.
