1 1⁄2 oz Gin, Tanqueray
1 oz Aromatized wine, Lillet Blanc
1 twst Lemon peel

Stir with ice until well chilled and strain into a very cold glass


A twist on the Martini adding Maraschino sweetens but also gives a 2:1 Martini an interesting flavour. You can go to 0.5oz of the Maraschino but personally I find that a little too sweet


Made this one up in France, where Lillet is cheap and plentiful! There must be a recipe using these ingredients out there but I am yet to find it!
