From the bartender’s corner – Martinez
This is a very common gin cocktail but made only with Old Tom gins. Since I am still experimenting and researching on Ransom Old Tom Gin, I thought I will try this today. Along with the Old Tom Gin, this has Maraschino liqueur, Sweet Vermouth and Bitters.
The Martinez will remind you of a lot of whiskey based cocktails because of the wood aroma since these are barrel aged gins. The Juniper can be smelt too. But the rest of the botanicals are pretty much drowned by the Italian cherries in Maraschino. Slightly on the drier side, it has a small bite in its length.
