Martinez Cocktail


Martinez cocktail is considered to be the predecessor of dry Martini.  This is a sweet classic cocktail because of sweet vermouth and other liqueur and it’s highly recommended to use Old Tom gin.  As matter of fact, many bartenders and mixologists suggest Tanqueray Old Tom which is a 180 year old gin recipe from Charles Tanqueray.





  • 1 ounce of Tanqueray Old Tom gin
  • 1/4 ounce of sweet vermouth
  • 1 dash of orange bitter
  • 2 Dashes of Maraschino liqueur

How to prepare Martinez cocktail:

Chill a glass first.  Pour all the content into the glass with ice and stir well.  Strain it into another chilled glass.  You can garnish it with lemon wedge or cherry.
