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.


Casa Blanca

Иногда процесс гораздо масштабнее и значительнее результата…

Pegu Cocktail

My dear friends… Hm-m-m…

Неважно… У меня сейчас сессия, времени на коктейли не хватает…
В общем достаю из архива.

A Pegu Cocktail is one of my favorite drinks. Undoubtedly, this cocktail demands a detailed investigation and a place (maybe … fifth or sixth) in my TOP of Drink by Scomorokh.


Pegu Cocktail

60 ml gin
20 ml curacao (green curacao DeKuyper)
2 wedges of lime
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Muddle limes, curacao, and bitters in a mixing glass. Add gin and ice and shake. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime peel.

This version I’ve found here – King of Cocktails From Pegu Club, Burma…

You may ask why it looks so green :) It is my … zest :) (Actually, I don’t have orange curacao in my bar, only green and blue).
