Martinez Cocktail (Updated)

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • 2 dashes Maraschino Liqueur
  • 1.5 ounces Gin
  • 1 ounce Dry Vermouth
  • Lemon (Garnish)

Shake all the ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with the lemon piece.

Noilly Prat, the French company that pioneered dry vermouth, didn't begin shipping to the United States until 1896. All Martinis prior to that were made with Italian sweet vermouth.
