Instructions

Stir, strain, up, cocktail, olive or cherry garnish

Notes

Can sub Orange Curacao for the Maraschino, but Maraschino is more interesting. Weirdly enough, Vermeire says "This is a Manhattan with gin for the rye", and then proceeds to specify French (dry) vermouth instead of sweet vermouth.

Comments

Curated this. I found an attribution (see the link), which may be the first in print citation of a Martinez being gin and dry vermouth. For the purists, the recipe cites 1/4 gill ea of Old Tom and French vermouth, which is a small cocktail. Reverted recipe to the original, added creator and source information.
