Martinez Cocktail Recipe
40ml 'LONDON' Dry Gin
40ml Sweet Red Vermouth
Marasca (Sour Cherry) Liqueur
Firstly, pre-chill your Nick & Nora cocktail glass and leave it on the side.
Get a mixing jug.
Add in 40ml 'LONDON' Dry Gin to your mixing jug.
Add 40ml Sweet Red Vermouth to your mixing jug.
Add 2 tablespoons of Marasca Liqueur.
Add 2 dashes of Orange Bitters.
Ice up your mixing jug.
Give it all a good stir to ensure the drink is well mixed and nice and chilled.
Keep stirring and taste the liquid. Once the burn fades away and just before it gets watery, you need to stop stirring.
You're now ready to pour the liquid into your pre-chilled glass.
Garnish with a Maraschino cherry.
Sit back and enjoy your homemade, iconic Martinez cocktail!
