Two great cocktails to create using these amazing bitters.
This precursor to the Martini is a celebration of Gin and Sweet Vermouth. What makes this cocktail perfectly well rounded is the addition of Maraschino liqueur and aromatic bitters. The Martinez is rich and aromatic enough for a cold weather night yet floral enough for a hot summer day. It’s a great cocktail for someone that wants something a bit darker in flavor and richness but without brown spirits.
