Martini is no great cocktail only but vermouth. This cocktail is Grand Martini (& Rossi of course).
1 dash Creme de menthe green
3 dashes kirsch
4 dashes apricot brandy
30 ml dry vermouth
30 ml sweet vermouth
30 ml dry gin
Shake. Cocktail glass.
This amazing cocktail was a winner of the ICC 1930 (London). Nine years later Walter Madigan mixed it without calvados and won ICC 1939.
I think now it may be considered as a pure classic (well, at least as an interesting vintage cocktail).
It has complicated taste with undertones of fruits (ripe apples, dried fruits, grapes, apricots) and fabulous look with a little summer sun in your glass.
