Saffron and Bitter Orange Martini

Complex, bitter and definitely a slow sipping cocktail
1 23 oz Gin, Gabriel Boudier Saffron
2 12 t Bianco Vermouth, Dolin
2 12 t Orange Curaçao, Marie Brizard (Dry or any bitter orange liqueur)
1 ds Orange bitters, Bitter Truth Orange
Stir and strain into a martini glass
Originally made at Mother's Ruin Gin Palace using liqueurs and bitters we make on site. But I think a good version could be made using commercially available ingredients. A good orange bitters of any brand, and a bitter orange liqueur such as dry curaçao should stand in well

Curated this: Capitalized the name of the drink. Cleaned up the notes section quite a bit - added Gabriel Boudier Saffron as a brand of gin. Corrected Dolin entry to Blanc Vermouth. Cleaned up the instructions - removed the recap of the drink. Thanks, Zachary
