Foggy Day

But maybe it is more correct to name that a “Frosty” Day … ;)

Foggy Day

50 ml gin
15 ml pastis (Pernod)
Shake. Old-fashioned glass, garnish with a lemon twist.

Very London taste… I think…

Silver Jubilee

30 ml gin
30 ml creme de banane
15 ml cream
Shake. Cocktail.

Hm-m-m-m… Why “silver” when it looks gold? :)

Martinez

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.
