This Martinez variation pays homage to Vermont's Northeast Kingdom by featuring craft producers from the Green Mountain State. Caledonia Spirits Barr Hill Tom Cat Gin is a great double-whammy of Old Tom style with some nice barrel aging that adds just enough oak-iness to make you take notice. A great gin drink for Manhattan lovers or people who say they don't like gin.
- 2 ounces Caledonia Spirits Barr Hill Tom Cat Gin
- 1 ounce sweet vermouth
- 1/4 ounce Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
- 2-3 dashes Urban Moonshine Maple Bitters
- Lemon twist for garnish
In a mixing glass or pint glass filled with ice, add in all the ingredients and stir thoroughly until cold (about 15 seconds).
Strain into a coupe glass or martini glass and garnish with a lemon twist (or Red & Brown Cocktail Cherry if you prefer).
