The Martinez is something like a Manhattan with gin substituted for the whiskey, and this is sweet cocktail will probably reminder you of that classic. First appearing in the mid-to-late 1800s, this classic seems to have as many formulations as there are bartenders.

The recipe below is from the PDT mobile app. Please play with the proportions of gin and vermouth to find the flavor that's right for you.

  • 1 1/2 ounce Old Tom gin (such as Hayman's)
  • 1 1/2 ounce sweet red vermouth (such as Dolin Rouge)
  • 1/4 ounce maraschino liqueur
  • 1 dash of bitters (such as Angostura)

Place all of the components in a mixing class with ice and stir vigorously. Serve up in a cocktail class. Garnish with cherries or a lemon twist.
