Description

The classic gin martini made with orange bitters and lemon peel twist. Sorry no olives here.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1/2 ounce dry vermouth (I prefer Dolin)
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • lemon peel

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice (except the lemon peel). Shake for 10 seconds and strain into a chilled coupe glass.
  2. Squeeze and twist the lemon peel over glass to extract oils, wipe the rim of the glass with the peel and add to the drink. Serve.
